Two suspects fled a Rogers store on Young Street Alliston with an unknown number of cellphones and were able to evade police after their getaway van was spotted on Highway 89.
Ontario Provincial Police say the culprits forced their way into the store just before six o’clock Monday evening and herded the three employees to the back of the building where they were restrained.
The males got into a storage area and scooped up a bunch of mobile devices.
They left the area in a silver Toyota minivan.
A short time later the van was seen eastbound on Highway 89. The driver was able to evade police and the vehicle was found abandoned in Toronto.
Both suspects are described as being approximately 6′ and of slim build.
