Both suspects, who were wearing dark clothing and had their hoods up in an attempt to hide their identities, had wire-cutters and threatened to harm employees if they tried to intervene, the sergeant said.

No one was injured.

The robbers took eight to 10 cell phones and tablets and took off from the business, 4007 Far Hills Ave., in a silver Toyota SUV, he said.

Sgt. DiSalvo noted that because robbers like to repeatedly hit cell phone stores at one time, police in Kettering and area jurisdictions will be paying attention to area cell phone stores.


Police have been alerted to be on the lookout for two suspects who robbed the Sprint store, 4007 Far Hills Ave., Thursday afternoon.

The suspects, males believed to be 20 to 25 years old, apparently took an Apple phone display, according to a Kettering police officer.

The suspects were last seen in a silver Toyota headed south on Far Hills Avenue just before 6 p.m.

According to Montgomery County Regional Dispatch, the suspects implied one or both had a firearm but none was shown. One of them had a bolt-cutter.

No injuries have been reported.

We have a crew on the way to the business for more information. We will update this developing report as we learn more.
