KENSINGTON - Police are searching for two men that they say stole about 50 cell phones from a store in Kensington earlier today. Investigators say the men entered the store at around 1:30 p.m. to inquire whether the clerks bought cell phones off the street. One of the men then pulled out a gun, punched the clerk and ran out with the phones, valued at $20,000. The clerk says he was alone at the time, and that the same man had been in the store several days prior to the attack. He says the man would have taken more had another customer not entered the store. Police say they have not identified any suspects and are urging anyone with information to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS.
