Cingular Robbery

Some would-be thieves tried to get away with some expensive cell phones yesterday, but a store employee stopped one of them in his tracks. It happened at the Cingular store in the 6-thousand block of South Broadway in south Tyler.

Police say three men entered the store around 6:45 last night. They say they tried to steal display phones, and hide them in their clothes. 

When the store manager called the police, two of the men ran away. The third was stopped by a store employee. He was arrested on-site, and is charged with robbery. The two men that fled from the store were arrested a short time later.
