Suspects arrested in cellphone, computer store break-ins

WYOMING, Mich. -- A suspect has been arrested after another break-in at a Wyoming cellphone store.

It happened early Thursday morning at the Go Wireless Verizon Store, 1633 28th St. in Wyoming.

Police arrived to find the glass front door shattered but said there wasn't much taken in the break-in. Shortly after receiving the store's alarm call, an officer stopped a car for suspicious activity.

Officers say the vehicle fled the stop, but investigators knew enough about the vehicle to continue and eventually found the driver.

Police say the suspect is a juvenile.

The day before Thursday's break-in, someone broke into Fortitude Computers on 28th Street and stole items from inside. Since then, police have arrested a suspect in that incident.

This break-in comes as a rash of cellphone store break-ins have happened across West Michigan. Investigators haven't determined if Thursday either incident is related to any of the others.

If you know anything, call police.

    Police don’t say too much anymore.Whether it’s new police policy or for whatever reason,descriptions of usually black suspects are considered “racist”(which is wrong)and an explanation of whether anything was stolen or not is pretty much avoided too.Is the thinking,by not admitting large amounts of merchandise are vulnerable to easy theft,other thugs wont attempt similar break-ins?
    “They broke in,but they didn’t steal anything,” is what we hear a lot now.
    Uh huh.
