ST. LOUIS, MO (KPLR)-Criminals burst into a south St. Louis business early Monday. The smash and grab happened around 1:30am at the Wireless 66 cell phone business near the intersection of Gravois and Gustine. Police say the suspects slammed a stolen SUV into the business, breaking boards over the windows and shattering the glass door. They swiped cell phones and accessories.

They got a way in another vehicle waiting outside, so the suspects left the SUV at the scene. If you have any information in the case, call CrimeStoppers at 1-866-371-TIPS (8477).

The business was boarded up because the owners feared it might get damaged during the recent protests.
