Howell Police Seek Suspects in AT&T Store Robbery

No injuries reported during robbery

The Howell Police Department is seeking help from anyone who might have information about a robbery at the AT&T Store in the Aldrich Plaza Friday night. 

Sgt. Mike Martin said that at approximately 8 p.m. on Friday night three black men entered the store and each displayed what he described as semi-automatic silver handguns. The three suspects then ordered the employee to take them to the safe in the back of the store where they filled backpacks with 31 cell phones and four tablets. The total value of the items stolen was estimated at $14,500. 

The three men then fled through the rear of the store but it is unknown which direction they went according to Martin or whether they left on foot or by car. 

Martin said the three men were described as being approximately 5-10 and tall with thin builds. At the time they were wearing all black with ski masks and black back packs. 

Ptl. William Bonner is handling the investigation and anyone with information is encouraged to contact the Howell Police Department at 732-938-4111

Three black guys with ski masks? EACH on showing a sliver hand gun? If there are no photos from cameras then I don't buy it.

stole 31 phones....all of which are useless when trying to be activated since each contains an imei number and all of which will be reported to AT&T (every store is required to keep records and logs of every phones number for such an emergency), this is why you can never ever trust a phone you buy second hand.

Imagine how different things would have been if there was a ban on military style assault weapons.

Do you really think they bought those guns legally. just because they are banned doesnt mean they cant get them.
