Robbers get away with $25,000 worth of merchandise from AT&T store in Kendall

Robbery reported at about 8:30 p.m. July 13

KENDALL, Fla. – Miami-Dade police are searching for three armed robbers who held up an AT&T store last month in Kendall.

The robbery was reported at about 8:30 p.m. July 13 at the AT&T at 12190 SW 88th St.

Police said one robber walked around the store for a few minutes before he pulled out a gun and forced employees and customers to lie down in the back of the store.

He then took all of their wallets and cellphones, authorities said.

Local 10 News reporter Layron Livingston was told that the man pistol-whipped one of the employees and cocked the gun while holding it against one of the victim's head. 

Police said another robber acted as a lookout while a third man ordered an employee to open the safe.

The employee told the thief that there was a time delay on the safe, authorities said.

Police said the man told her he didn't have time to wait and grabbed about 20 to 25 cellphones.

Police said the thieves left the store with about $25,000 worth of merchandise.

None of the victims were seriously injured, authorities said.

Detectives believe a fourth person might have been driving a gray hatchback that the robbers drove away in. 

Anyone with information about the thieves' identities is asked to call Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at 305-471-TIPS.
