Police say the two men entered a Sprint store and showed a gun and forced the manager to open the store safe. The men took 70 new cellphones, five tablets and some money and fled the store. A store clerk called police and told them one of the phones had a GPS tracker.
Officers tracked the phone to a gas station and arrested 35-year-old Christopher Martin and 22-year-old Duqwain Hopkins on charges of theft and robbery. Martin also faces a charge of being a felon in possession of a weapon.
Police say they found the phones and tablets worth $75,000, money taken from the store and a loaded gun in the car with the two men.
