Cedar Lake Police Seek Assistance Identifying Armed Robbers

If you recognize any of these suspects please contact the Cedar Lake Police at 219-374-5416 ext. 118

April 20, 2017-Cedar Lake Police are asking for help from the public in identifying and located suspects in an armed robbery.  According to Deputy Chief Carl Brittingham, “On 04/19/2017 at approximately 4:05 pm the AT&T store located on Wicker Ave. Cedar Lake, Indiana was robbed. Two black males wearing gloves, masks, and hoods entered the store armed with handguns and demanded everyone move to the back room of the store. Once in the back the two forced an employee to access a storage safe where approximately $48,000 in new cellular phones were stolen. The phones range from iPhones to Samsung phones. The phones have since been blacklisted by AT&T and will no longer work on any phone network. The two suspects placed the phones in a large black bag and then exited the store and entered a silver Hyundai Sonata 4dr (2015 to 2017 model with Illinois plates). The driver of the suspect vehicle may have been captured on surveillance video prior to the robbery.”

It is believed the same suspects had previously robbed at least two other AT&T stores in the suburbs of Illinois on different dates, prior to this robbery.

Anyone with information about this case are asked to contact Deputy Chief Carl Brittingham of the Cedar Lake Police Department. Video images of the suspects and suspect vehicle were captured and provided with this press release.
