Police are looking for a teen suspected of stealing two newer iPhone models from a Sprint store.

According to Woodstock Police Department:

An employee of the Sprint at 9020 Ga. Highway 92 in Woodstock told police last Thursday that at about 2 p.m. that afternoon, while she was helping a customer, an unknown young black male entered the store, removed two iPhones from their security cables and ran out of the store, breaking the glass door on the way out.

The customer described the thief as a black male approximately 18 years old, approximately 5'9" in height with a stocky build, with a "baby face" and wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt and blue jeans. The property reported stolen was one display model iPhone II Pro Max with a value of $1,099 and one iPhone 11 Pro with a value of $999. The broken door was estimated to cost approximately $2,000 repair - a total cost of over $4,000.

The witnesses reported the male ran out of the store and to the right, behind the store.

Police saw surveillance video from a nearby business of a black Chrysler 300 dropping a black male off behind the Sprint building. The officer then viewed the male running behind the Sprint building and west bound toward a Wells Fargo Bank.

A witness at the bank told police that he saw a dark in color Chrysler sedan with dark tinted windows, which backed into a parking space next to the dumpster in the back of the parking lot behind the bank. He said he saw a black male in blue jeans and a grey hoodie crouching while he ran toward the Chrysler sedan and got into the passenger side, and the sedan quickly exited toward Molly Lane and out of sight.

The incident is under investigation.
