iPads, cell phones targeted in Santa Fe Springs takeover robbery

SANTA FE SPRINGS — Three armed and masked robbers targeted iPads and cell phones Saturday during a takeover robbery at a Verizon store, police said.
Two men and a woman, all wearing hoods and masks, entered the store in the 11700 block of Telegraph Road, just west of Pioneer Boulevard, about 4:30 p.m., Whittier police Lt. Carlos Solorza said. One of the men and one of the women carried handguns.
“They ordered six employees to the ground at gunpoint,” the lieutenant said.
The robbers then went into a back room of the store and stole an unknown number of iPads and Android cell phones, he said.
“They fled out the back door and left in black Dodge Magnum,” Solorza added.
None of the employees were injured during the robbery.
Anyone with information was asked to call Whittier police at 562-567-9200.
