CINCINNATI -- Monroe police are looking for multiple suspects believed to be involved in a rash of break-ins at several Verizon Wireless store locations in the Tri-State.
The most recent break-in occurred at the Verizon store at 3291 Heritage Green Drive in Monroe Township on Oct. 18. Police say about five suspects broke into the store around 1 a.m. and took approximately $4,000 in merchandise.
Another break-in occurred at a Verizon store on Oct. 15 in the 4900 block of Delhi Road in Delhi Township. Police say the suspects smashed glass to enter the store and took a large amount of smartphones.
A Verizon location in the 8400 block of Mason Montgomery Road was broken into twice, on Sept. 22 and Oct. 3. Police say the suspects threw a large rock through the front door and took nearly $30,000 in smartphones.
"We've noticed that the entry into the businesses have all been similar with a rock through the window and the time in the store is very similar, about 40 seconds," said Lt. Joe Macaluso of the Delhi Township Police Department.
Police believe the break-ins are related. One suspect was seen wearing the same outfit on surveillance video during two break-ins, police say.
"I don't believe this is just a couple of kids breaking into a store. I believe this is a ring and this is a more sophisticated ring," said Macaluso.
Anyone with information on these break-ins is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 513-352-3040.
