SALISBURY — Police are looking for two men who robbed a Cricket Wireless cellphone store Monday morning while wearing disposable face masks and rubber gloves.

The men stole several cellphones and cash, said Salisbury Police Department spokesman Lt. Lee Walker.

A man rang the bell around 10:30 a.m. at the store, located at 1040 Freeland Drive, and asked if he could upgrade his iPhone to a newer model. The manager told the man he could and would need to provide some information in order to process the upgrade, Walker said.

The man requesting an upgrade said he had to get his wallet from his car. He returned to the store with a gun and told the manager to get money from the safe at the back of the store. The manager handed the man cash from the safe. The suspect took money from the register and placed several iPhones into a backpack.

A second person who was also wearing a mask began gathering cellphones as well. The two left the store.

One person was wearing a black baseball cap, a white T-shirt, dark pants and multi-colored shoes. The second suspect wore a mask and gloves with what appeared to be a black hooded sweatshirt, dark pants and black shoes.
