Armed robbers get away with $440K, police say

Posted: Updated:

Dallas police need help catching a pair of brazen armed robbers who have dominated employees and stolen about $440,000 worth of merchandise.

Maj. Jeff Cotner said the Hispanic male suspects are responsible for at least two robberies in the Dallas area this month.

The first happened at a T-Mobile store on Fort Worth Avenue on July 2. The masked men walked in when there were no customers, tied up employees and stole about $40,000 worth of phones.

Then on Saturday they robbed a wholesale distributor on Harry Hines Boulevard of about $400,000 in merchandise. They approached the employees as they were leaving for the day, displayed weapons and fired one shot into the ground.

In both instances the suspects took away the employees' ability to call 911.

Police are worried that the robberies are getting more aggressive and dangerous.

"They're getting a little more brazen, so that's concerning," Maj. Cotner said.

Police have surveillance video of the men getting into a light-colored Lincoln Navigator following the robbery at T-Mobile. They hope someone can identify it.

Anyone with information should call police or Crime Stoppers at 214-373-8477.
