Baltimore County Police are seeking to identify two suspects who used deception to steal multiple cell phones from a Wireless Zone store in Dundalk.
Surveillance video from the store, located in the 7800 block of Wise Avenue in Precinct 12, shows the two suspects walking around inside the store wearing baseball caps and bandages on their faces in an attempt to conceal their identities. Exterior surveillance video also captured them fleeing in a black 4-door Mercedez vehicle with what appears to be a an inoperative right side brake light.
The two bandaged suspects entered the Wireless Zone store around 4:35 p.m. on December 14. While one distracted the store clerk, the other slipped into a back area of the store and concealed a number of new Apple iPhone and Galaxy cell phones, still in boxes, under his clothing. When confronted by the clerk, the two suspects left the store. The clerk checked the stock room and found the phones were missing, then called police, but the suspects could not be located.
Both suspects appear to be thin males age 20-29. One wore a red hooded sweatshirt under a black jacket with a large Champion brand symbol, dark colored pants and red athletic shoes. He has a black mustache and is wearing bandages on his nose and chin. The other wore a plain black baseball cap, a black jacket, dark pants and white athletic shoes. He had a black mustache and goatee, and wore a bandage on each cheek.
