Moments ago, the Dallas Police Department sent the video you see above, in which two men took by storm the Metro PCS store at 2247 Buckner Boulevard on February 6 at around 7:33 p.m. According to the police report, the two men got away with $12,900 when they gained entry to the safe, plus more than 30 cellphones, most new. Says DPD:
Suspect #1 was described as a Latin male around 20 years old wearing all dark clothes. He is believed to be around 5' 6" and weighs 140 pounds. Suspect #2 is also believed to be a Latin male wearing a brown coat and brown pants. He is around 6' 0" tall and weighs around 160 pounds. Both men were armed with dark colored semi-automatic handguns.
Anyone with information about these two suspects, or this offense, is asked to contact the Dallas Police Departments Robbery Unit at (214) 671-3584 or Crime Stoppers at (214) 373-8477.
