Robbers Hit Radio Shack in Clinton

Clinton Police

Clinton police released this surveillance image of a PT cruiser used by two people to get away after robbing the Radio Shack at 215 East Main Street on Tuesday night.

Employees at a Radio Shack in Clinton were tied up and robbed Tuesday night.

It is the latest in a string of Radio Shack robberies in the area.

According to police, two masked people entered the store at 215 East Main Street around 8:30 p.m. and implied they had weapons. The robbers tied up store employees with duct tape, police said.

The pair made off with more than $300 in cash and an undetermined number of iPhones, according to police. They took off in a dark-colored PT Cruiser, police said.

Robbers have struck at Radio Shacks in Orange, Wallingford, East Haven, Hamden and Trumbull in recent weeks.

"Our detectives are working with area police and other agencies. We have reason to believe that, obviously, all these Radio Shack robberies are related," said Sgt. Jeremiah Dunn, of the Clinton Police Department.

During each robbery, two to three people wearing masks and hooded sweatshirts entered the stores and stole iPhones, police said.

Anyone with information is asked to call your local police department.
