TROY, Mich. (WJBK) -

A call to police was enough to put a pair of suspected burglars out of business.

Acting on a tip police in Troy say they were able to arrest two men suspected of stealing more than 100 iPhones from Partners in Progress, a cell phone repair business.

Investigators say a citizen reported two suspicious men had parked a vehicle at Chicago and Maple and then walked south carrying duffle bags. When officers arrived the men dropped their bags and ran in opposite directions. With the help from a Royal Oak Police K9 unit both men were arrested a short time later. Officers followed the men's footprints in the snow to the cell phone business where they found someone had broken a window to get inside. 

27-year-old Brandon Albert Dean and 28-year-old Clarence Jerald Boger have been arraigned on charges of "Breaking and Entering." Bond was set at $20,000 cash or surety bond for Dean and $5,000 cash or surety for Boger.
