Police bust smash and grab suspects responsible for Wal-Mart burglaries

Posted: Updated:
(WMC-TV) - Daniel Robinson and Tyrone Bernard are behind bars in Arkansas.
    
They turned themselves in earlier this week for smashing in several Apple display cases in Wal-Marts across Northeast Arkansas.

Surveillance still pictures from the Brownsville, Tennessee Wal-Mart clearly show a man, in a yellow construction vest, breaking the glass in the electronics department.

Another picture shows yet another suspect with an empty shopping cart, ready to fill it up.

Police say Robinson and Bernard are also responsible for the robbery there.

"One of them looks like they're shopping, fills their cart up with a lot of merchandise, pushing it around," said Brownsville Police Lt. Chuck Willis.

Police said on Thanksgiving weekend, Daniel Robinson and Tyrone Bernard walked into the Brownsville Wal Mart and a short time later walked out with a lot of expensive merchandise they didn't pay for.

"iPhones, iPads, electronic equipment, cell phones," continued Willis.

"Yeah I feel safe but when that happened, it scared a lot of people," added resident Susan Mathias.

Police said these two are responsible for smash and grabs at Wal-Mart stores in Selmer, Covington, Batesville, Forest City, Jonesboro and Osceola. 

Collierville police helped identify them before they robbed the Wal-Mart in Brownsville.

Police said these two men would hit these stores in about the same way. 

They crooks would go into the hardware department, take hammers and then take those hammers over to the electronics department where they would break the glass and walk out the door with expensive merchandise.

Police said store clerks would hear the glass being broken, but couldn't stop the two before they ran out the door.
