TROY (WWJ) - Dramatic video shows a break-in at a cell phone store in Troy, while police search for four suspects in a trio of robberies.

At the T-Mobile at Square Lake Rd. and Rochester Rd., owner David Yousef spoke to WWJ's Charlie Langton as he cleaned up shards of broken glass.

Video shows a brick was thrown through the front door of his store, early Friday morning. The suspects, all in black, then ransacked the place before fleeing; in and out of the store in about a minute. 

"I just got a call this morning that there was a break-in; I got here and there's all this," Yousef said. "Four people walked into — broke, you know, the door — got whatever they wanted."

Several phones were stolen, he said. At least one of the suspected appeared to be armed with a handgun. 

Langton reports two other stores were broken into early in the morning in Sterling Heights; another T-Mobile and a Sprint store. 

Police speculate that all three robberies were committed by the same suspects.

Despite the video, Yousef worries it could be impossible to identify the robbers.

"We didn't know any of them, because they were all wearing masks, you know, hoodies, jackets, hats and stuff," he said. 

The investigation is just getting underway.
