Cell phones stolen in Pico Rivera Radio Shack robbery

PICO RIVERA — Two men stole more than two-dozen iPhone and Samsung cell phones during an armed robbery at a Radio Shack early Wednesday, officials said.
The crime took place just before 9:15 a.m. at the store in the 8700 block of Washington Boulevard, Los Angeles County sheriff’s Lt. Robert Smith said.
The robbers entered the store and pointed a handgun at employees, demanding cell phones, the lieutenant said. At least some of the employees hid in a storage room.
Smith said the robbers helped themselves to about 25 iPhones and Samsung Galaxy SIII phones and fled. No getaway car was seen.
Officials described the robbers as two black men, both about 6 feet 2 inches tall and of thin build. Both wore dark clothing and hooded sweat shirts, and one had several tattoos on his neck.
