Suspects in the robbery of an Oxford Verizon store last month are believed to be part of a group committing crimes in multiple states, police said.
The robbery involved two men, both armed with Glock 9mm handguns, who around 3:40 p.m. July 26 held up the Verizon Wireless location at 4965 College Corner Pike. The men took products and cash, according to police.
A day later, Oxford police released security photos of the suspects and asked for help in identifying them.
On Monday, police said Oxford investigators are working with local, state, and federal partners throughout the Midwest to identify the suspects and file criminal charges against the two people in the store as well as any possible accomplices.
It is believed that the two people shown in OPD’s released photographs have been captured in Illinois. according to Oxford Police Lt. Lara Fening. But as of Monday afternoon, no criminal charges had been filed.
