Trio accused of robbing Sprint store in custody
HIALEAH, Fla. (WSVN) -- Three females who allegedly stole phones from a South Florida cell phone retailer have turned themselves over to police.
The trio turned themselves in Thursday night. A woman who identified herself as the mother of one of the arrestees told 7News that she convinced the group to come clean.
Police identify the woman as Zeffreyniece Ysheka Coleman, Latrice Nicole Coleman and Victoria Clark. They were transported from the City of Miami to Hialeah.
Police escorted the three to the Miami-Dade County jail, where they are facing numerous charges. "Many callers identified these three suspects and now they are in our custody just a few days later," said Hialeah Police Department Carl Zogby.
Surveillance cameras captured the brazen robbery that occurred Tuesday at the Sprint store off West 49th Avenue. One woman boldly took out a pair of scissors and cut the wire of a display phone during business hours, while another distracted the clerk before the three bolted with over $1,000 worth of smart phones.
Sprint Store owner Miguel Vidal thanked 7News. "Thank you to Channel 7 for putting it out there and trying to get these ladies off the streets," he said.
