YORK COUNTY, S.C. —
Several local police departments are working across state lines to figure out if there is a link between a string of break-ins at area cellphone stores.The cases could reach from Hickory to Rock Hill.Police from at least five agencies in North and South Carolina met in Hickory to compare notes.The crimes that police think are connected all occurred this month with one in Hickory, two in Charlotte and the rest in York County.The Sprint Store in Manchester Village is one of the four in York County hit on the same night. The other stores are on Highway 160 in the Fort Mill area and at Lake Wylie.All four times, police said the suspects threw rocks or concrete though the front door and got in.Money and cellphones were taken in some cases and other times nothing.Police told Channel 9 they thing the crime spree is widespread, but each agency only has one piece of the puzzle.“They are all over North Carolina, all over South Carolina, there’s been other ones in South Carolina that we believe may be connected all in this one group,” Rock Hill Police Lt. Brad Redfearn.Channel 9 asked police for surveillance video, but they said there is nothing they can release at this point.Police said the robbers are hitting these places and leaving so quickly, sometimes the property damage is more expensive than what they manage to get away with.
