ASHLAND, Ore. -- Ashland police is looking for two suspects who made off with a handful of cell phones.

Two men went into the AT&T store on Ashland Street in Ashland on Tuesday, March 28th.

They stole five cell phones with the help of a third person, a female already arrested, who distracted employees.

The suspects, in their mid-twenties, one of them also known as TCH ONG, got away with about $2800 worth of phones.

This theft could also be considered a burglary because a suspect went into a location not open to the public.

"They were bold enough, one of them, to even go back into the storage room and steal some of the phones that were still in boxes. Brazen group, young men, and this woman was also involved, conspiracy to theft," Deputy Chief Warren Hensman, with Ashland Police, said.

They left in a 2002 Subaru Impreza with left front fender damage, multi-colored and license plate 127 HBN.

Detectives believe these men move between southern Oregon and northern California on a regular basis.
