TILTON, Ill. (WCIA) -- Police are asking for help finding robbers who got away with $60,000 in phones and tablets.
It happened at the Verizon store in Tilton on Sunday. Police say three masked men robbed the only worker on duty at gun point in the afternoon. They tied him up, stole merchandise, cash and his car keys, then used that car to get away.The employee wasn't hurt.
Police found the employee's car a couple blocks away. They say witnesses saw the men get into a different car about two blocks south of the store. Those first-hand accounts are especially import in solving this case because police don't have a good description of the suspects.
The store has a security camera, but the three men behind the robbery were wearing masks and gloves. Despite that, looking over the video from that day has given the police at least one lead. They have an image of a man who was in the store right before the robbery happened. They're asking anyone with information about him or the robbery to reach out.
