ROCHESTER, Minn. - Rochester police are trying to find two men involved in a mega-shoplifting incident at a local retailer.
Officers were called to the north Target store Saturday night, at Marketplace Drive, after the thieves made off with more than 40 iPhones.
A spokesman says the two entered the store around 10:00 PM and went to a secure storage area where the phones were. A bolt cutter was used to gain access to the phones and the men put them in a suitcase. An employee became aware of the theft and tried stopping the men but they walked out, got into a vehicle and drove away.
One suspect is described as a black male, with medium-length dreaded hair in his 20's. The other suspect is described as a black male with short hair, unshaven and also in his 20's.
Authorities tell KIMT the case will likely be treated as a theft, not a burglary, as the store was open for business.
