Two people have been arrested in connection with burglaries of area phone stores in August.
Shaquile L. Booker, 23, of the 5900 block of Hessen Cassel Road, was charged with one count of burglary, while Htwe Htwe, 19, of the 1400 block of Eagle Street, was facing three preliminary charges of aiding a burglary, a Level 5 felony, and one count of theft, a Level 6 felony, according to court documents.
Booker was charged with the alleged Aug. 28 burglary of The Mobile Center, 1101 Goshen Road, after two men broke into and took eight 8-gigabyte SD cards, which police valued at $40 each, and a $250 wireless speaker that was captured on surveillance video and distributed to the media. An anonymous caller identified Booker on Aug. 29, according to the probable-cause affidavit.
Alonta J. Walker, 20, allegedly the other man on the surveillance video turned himself into police on Aug. 29 and was charged in connection with the burglary.
Walker also told police that he was involved in two other burglaries of phone stores, including the Aug. 29 burglary at the Sprint store, 5525 Coldwater Road, and the Aug. 28 burglary at the Metro PCS, 1622 Wells St., the affidavit said.
Htwe was arrested for allegedly driving Booker and Walker to the phone stores and for selling one of the stolen cellphones on Sept. 6.
