The Tyler PD is investigating several burglaries of cell phone companies in town this past weekend, according to a release from Public Information Officer Don Martin.

Martin wrote in the statement that the department believes that the suspects are from outside of Tyler due to multiple break-ins at other stores across East Texas.

This includes Lindale, Mineola, and Canton.

The suspects have covered their identity and are observed driving a small silver sedan. They have not been able to gain access to a large amount of merchandise in the Tyler locations.

They are encouraging stores to secure their merchandise after business hours and review your security measures.
