Burglaries at T-Mobile and Verizon Wireless in Chambersburg Under Investigation

Early in the morning on July 8, 2024, the Chambersburg Police Department was called to two simultaneous burglary incidents at local mobile phone stores. The first incident occurred at the T-Mobile store located at 450 Gateway Avenue around 5:13 AM. According to police reports, an unidentified suspect, driving a silver BMW sedan, shattered the store’s glass front door and stole six cellphones from a display counter before fleeing south on I-81.

Concurrently, another break-in was reported at the Verizon Wireless store at 925 Wayne Avenue. The suspects there smashed a window to enter and attempted to steal iPhone 15s from a display but failed. They did, however, manage to take another cellphone and a speaker box. The culprits left the scene in a white Dodge Magnum.

The Chambersburg Police Department has released photos of individuals who might have information pertinent to these cases. These individuals are currently considered persons of interest and not necessarily suspects. Authorities are urging anyone with information that could assist in identifying or locating these individuals to contact the Chambersburg Police Department at 717-264-4131 or to leave a tip on Crimewatch.
