HOUSTON (CNN/KPRC) - In Houston, surveillance cameras were rolling as a thief dropped into a cell phone store through the roof.
It happened Tuesday at the Cell Phone Wholesale store.
The suspect moved quickly, stuffing his cargo shorts with cell phones before heading back up the hole he climbed out of. The heist left the store owner in shock.
"I lost everything. We never ever expected someone would come [through] the roof. Never," said store owner Saira Siddiqa.
The store owner said the burglar walked away with more than 40 smartphones, which go for about $650 each.
