Wrong number: Four men arrested in Ohio phone store robberies

The Federal Bureau of Investigation said its agents were following four men after they left a cell phone store north of Cincinnati. The four were arrested after being pulled over on Interstate 70, east of Indianapolis.

The FBI's Violent Crimes Task Force followed the men after they were allegedly observed robbing at gunpoint a Verizon Wireless store in Troy, Ohio.

The men -- ages 27, 26, 25 and 23 -- are charged with armed robbery, as well as transporting firearms across state lines with intent to commit a felony, law enforcement officials told a TV station.

The 26-year-old and the 23-year-old are also accused of three separate armed robberies of cell phone stores in Indianapolis. Those stores were robbed in February and early March, police said.

The news report said that in each robbery, suspects brandished a gun as the front door was locked and employees were taken to a back room. Suspects would then take multiple phones.

In the March 12 incident, three suspects reportedly went inside the store with a duffel bag and "long rifle," a police spokesperson said. The fourth suspect waited outside in a car. The men then took 72 new phones and fled the scene in the car.

They were pulled over after they crossed the state line into Indiana.

Anyone facing similarly serious accusations should speak first with a criminal defense attorney experienced in defending clients accused of violent crimes. You can contact the Cincinnati law firm of Michael K. Allen & Associates for more information.
