$20K in cellphones, devices stolen from Wal-Mart store

Investigators are trying to identify two men who stole about $20,000 worth of cellphones and other digital devices from a Wal-Mart in Winder.

The men were caught on surveillance video breaking into locked counters early Dec. 8, Barrow sheriff’s spokesman Capt. Ryan Sears said.

"One guy can barely walk, he has so many cellphones in his pockets," sheriff's investigator Capt. Cory Almond told the Athens Banner-Herald.

The 54 Apple devices, including 18 iPhones, were valued at $19,536, Sears said.

Also, authorities are asking for help identifying a man who took almost $900 in electronics and clothing items from a Wal-Mart in Hall County, the Gainesville Times reported.
