£4,000 worth of mobile phones stolen in Kidderminster

Three people have been arrested after more than £4,000 worth of mobile phones were stolen from a shop in Kidderminster.

It happened at the O2 store in the High Street between 5pm and 5:20pm yesterday (March 20).

Three men went into the shop and began tearing phones from off the displays, aggressively warning staff to keep away. They left on foot carrying 16 phones worth £4,285, including Blackberries and various Samsung Galaxy models,

A vehicle was stopped by police on the A456 at Hagley shortly afterwards and three men in their early 20s from the Middlesex area were arrested on suspicion of robbery and theft.
