The storefronts of two local cell phone businesses were smashed in during burglaries on successive nights, according to a Tega Cay Police Department report.
The Verizon shop at 1135 Stonecrest Blvd. was broken into at 5:13 a.m. Monday, when an automatic alarm went off, the report states. Officers who responded found the glass front door shattered, some merchandise, including tablet and phone cases, scattered on the floor and damage to store computers and other equipment.
Whoever broke into the store took an undisclosed amount of cash from cash register drawers, which were left open, but left some of the cash behind, according to the report. Cell phones were stolen from display cases, the report states.
Burglars also struck a T-Mobile store at 2435 Hwy. 160 sometime before 1:52 a.m. today, when the break-in was reported after Tega Cay police responded to another automatic alarm. Officers found shelves and some merchandise on the floor, but it was undetermined, what, if any, items were stolen, according to the report.
