Biloxi Police say these two males caused damages when they shoplifted cellphones from Cricket Wireless on Tuesday, Jan. 27.

Two males brought tools to a cellphone store and cut wires that secured phones on display, police said.

The two ran out of Cricket Wireless with cellphones when a worker came from the back of the store, Biloxi Police Maj. Christopher De Back said.

It happened between 6:40 p.m. and 6:50 p.m. Tuesday. The mobile phone shop is in the 2300 block of Pass Road across from Beauvoir Road.

The two also caused damages to the booth where the cellphones were displayed, De Back said.

They covered their heads with hoodies but it didn’t stop store surveillance cameras from taking their pictures. De Back said one wore a black hoodie and the other wore a white hoodie.

Police say they may have left in a white four-door car, possibly a Chevy Impala or a Toyota.

Iris scanner at Harrison County jail helps identify accused shoplifter who called herself Princess Diana. Harrison County Sheriff’s Sgt. Justin Richards explains how the system works and how it solved last night’s case.
