The man involved in a string of Las Vegas cellphone business robberies reported Oct. 10 is being sought for four additional robberies that happened in the last five days, Las Vegas police said Wednesday.
At 6:40 p.m. on Oct. 10, “Mr. Telephone Man,” as Metro has dubbed him, robbed a cellphone store in the area of Pecos Road and Washington Avenue. The next day he robbed one store just after 5:30 p.m. near Pecos and Tropicana Avenue, another about 6 p.m. near Maryland Parkway and Twain Avenue and a third about 6:45 p.m. near Decatur Boulevard and Craig Road.
