FRENCHTOWN TOWNSHIP, Mich. – Police are searching for two men accused of stealing phones from a Sprint store in Monroe County while armed with knives.

The incident happened around 6:35 p.m. Monday at the Sprint store in the 1400 block of North Telegraph Road in Frenchtown Township.

Investigators said two men walked into the store and began looking at the cellular phone display models. When an employee asked them if they needed assistance, they pulled out knives, showed them to the employee and used them to cut the security tethers on the display phones, witnesses said.
