Burglary

Police are investigating a Tuesday burglary at the AT&T store.

Jackson detectives are investigating a burglary at the AT&T store where the suspects made off with 10 cellphones worth $5,000.

Officers responded just before 4 a.m. Tuesday to an alarm at the Buffalo Way store and found a shattered glass door.

“After securing the scene and contacting the owners, we determined several cellphones were stolen,” Jackson Police Lt. Roger Schultz said.

Detectives are reviewing surveillance video to try to identify the suspects. It appears that one of them was possibly wearing a Tyvek suit, Jackson Police Sgt. Michelle Weber said. The other suspect was likely the getaway driver in a dark sedan.

“The suspects arrived in the vehicle and left in the vehicle,” Weber said. “We’re also getting video from Albertsons.”

The AT&T store is located next to Albertsons. There were some grocery store employees at work nearby when the burglary happened.

Detectives are interviewing potential witnesses and using other tactics to track down the suspects.

Anyone with information about the crime or the burglars is encouraged to call the Police Department at 733-1430 and ask for Detective Jason Figueroa.

“Don’t assume we know what you know or that we have access to the same people or information that you do,” Schultz said. “There is only so much we can accomplish on our own, and we need our community’s help to solve and prevent crime.”

Anonymous tips can also be left at Jackson Hole Crime Stoppers: 733-5148.

AT&T employees declined to comment on the incident.
