According to detectives, a male black subject, who was wearing a black hooded sweatshirt, dark sweat pants, sneakers, a dark colored cloth covering his face and white gloves, entered the AT&T store, 186 Merrick Road. The subject, while displaying a black handgun, confronted a store employee and forced him to the rear of the store where the manager and another employee were concluding the day’s business. After directing the two employees into the bathroom, the subject ordered the manager to the stock room area and had him fill garbage bags with cell phones. He then directed the manager to open the stores safe where he removed an undisclosed amount of money.
After leaving the store through a rear door, the subject was observed by a witness loading the bags of cell phones into the trunk of a dark colored four door auto. He was assisted by a second subject who was described as being a male Hispanic wearing dark colored shorts and a light colored shirt. Both subjects then entered the car and were last seen heading westbound on Merrick Road.
No injuries were reported as a result of this incident.
