Winter Haven: Cops Searching For iPhone Thiefs


Winter Haven Police are asking for help in identifying three suspects who took iPhones and LG smart phones in a brazen act at a busy phone store. The AT&T is across from the Howard Johnson Inn in Winter Haven.

According to police, the three males entered the AT&T store at approximately 1:30 p.m. Tuesday and began looking at the phone displays and started talking with one of the clerks. As other customers walked around, the subjects continued to look at the displays and when the clerk turned around, the three grabbed phones off the displays breaking the security cables and ran from the store.

They ran to a waiting silver four-door Dodge Stratus being driven by a black female.

They are described as black males, all three between the ages of 18-22. One suspect is wearing a white ball cap, one a cammo cap and one had a knit-style green hat with a white band and an orange pom pom on top.

Anyone with information on the identities of any of these subjects is asked to call Heartland Crime Stoppers at 1-800-226-TIPS (8477). Callers can remain anonymous and could be eligible for a CASH reward.
