Thief steals iPhones secured to AT&T store's display counter

Two Apple iPhone 4S smartphones on display at an AT&T store in La Canada-Flintridge last week were stolen by a man after he cut the security cable that was keeping the top-of-the-line phones in place.

The man used some kind of tool to cut the cable. The manager of the store on Foothill Boulevard saw the man — described as 25 to 30 years old, wearing a black hat and long-sleeved shirt — pulling on the phones, but didn't stop him out of fear that he had a weapon, the La Cañada Valley Sun reported.

The phones were valued at $650 each.
