The hole is getting patched up, but the damage has been done. Dozens of cellphones were stolen from Grant Communications on the city's east side.
"It is obviously disturbing and it is not something anybody want to be a part of, but unfortunately it is something that we have to deal with," said store manager Dave Leonard.
The security door of the store next door was closed, but it was not locked. The thief simply put a crowbar on the door’s hinge and pop the door open. The thief then went inside that business, which was right next door to the Sprint store. Whoever stole the phones punched a hole in the drywall, climbed into the bathroom of the Sprint store and took 65 various cellphones worth more than $25,000.
The suspect kicked open the door to the manager's office, then opened the cabinet containing the phones. Investigators have not ruled out and inside job. Not surprisingly, the phones taken were the most expensive.
"The Samsung Galaxy SIII, they come in white and blue, they also took a significant number of the Samsung Galaxy SII and then we have the IPhone 4S in both white and black," said Leonard.
The break-in was caught on surveillance video and the 65 phones taken have been "blacklisted" across the country. The stolen phones are now worthless.
"Anywhere they take them they are going to pop up as lost or stolen and not able to be used," said Leonard.
