Police Search For Man Behind Philadelphia Cell Phone Store Robberies

- Philadelphia police are looking for a man they say is behind a string of armed robberies at cell phone stores in the city.

Police say the man has hit at least three stores in recent weeks, ordering customers and workers to back rooms and tying them up.

He then steals cell phones, tablets and other items and carries them away in a box or rolling suitcase.

No one has been hurt in any of these robberies, but the thefts have employees at these types of stores on edge.

Police want people to take notice of the suspect's walk. They say he has a limp that they hope will help someone identify him.

Anyone with information should call police.
