Burglary at T-Mobile Lake Wales


On December 1, 2017, Lake Wales Police were dispatched to a Burglary call at the T-Mobile store at 2800 Ridge Way Suite B.  Officers arrived and observed the front window shattered. The interior had been ransacked.  The owner of this local store responded to the scene and was able to determine that the unknown suspects did knowingly and intentionally take possession of numerous phones and accessories totaling $8800 dollars. Video shows five unknown suspects enter the premises through the broken window and commit the thefts from inside before fleeing the scene.

The suspects were driving two vehicles:

  1. Tan 4-door Toyota sedan
  2. Black 4-door Kia sedan

The suspects got back in these vehicles and fled the area. The suspects appear to be the same as those who committed same-type criminal acts in other cities throughout East Polk County last night.

Anyone having information on this burglary is asked to call Detective Ben Metz at (863) 678-4223 extension 265 or Heartland Crime Stoppers at (800) 226-8477.
