MILTON, Ga. – Four people have possibly targeted local Radio Shacks for theft. The Milton store on Windward Parkway was the site of a theft Sept. 10 with one phone taken.

Store employees told police four people walked in about 12:45 p.m. – two men and two women. While the women spoke with the employees about switching their phone service and buying a phone, the door to the back office was left open and, employee say, the men went in and stole a Samsung Galaxy phone. The group left after just 10 minutes. When employees went back into the office, they noticed the phone missing.

The Radio Shack store in Oakwood, Ga., sent out an alert to nearby stores that two men and two women driving a gold compact car had attempted a similar theft. While the women distracted the clerk, the men tried to get into the rear office, however in Oakwood, an alarm went off.
