Jonesboro and Paragould police are investigating break-ins at cell phone stores in each town.

According to a Jonesboro police incident report, officers were dispatched to A Wireless at 1500 S. Caraway on Nov. 1 just before 5:00 a.m. for a glass break alarm.

Police found the glass front door broken and display cell phones stolen.

A large rock was found on the floor next to the computer desk.

Police discovered that display stands were broken from counters and shelves that held phones were knocked off the wall.

In Jonesboro, the thieves stole more than $7,500 worth of merchandise and did roughly $2,200 in damage to the store.
