LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) — Four teens have been arrested on suspicion of a string of robberies at cell phone stores in Los Angeles, Orange and San Bernardino counties, but police say a fifth suspect remains at large.
LAPD investigators arrested the four in connection with a series of robberies between Aug. 1 and Dec. 23, 2019. In each robbery, the suspects would walk in between 2 and 7 p.m., cut or pull security cables from the electronic devices and take them from display tables.
Each time, the suspects ran out with multiple phones. Police say the crew is responsible for thousands of dollars in property loss.

The bill reasons that if those under 21 aren't mature enough to smoke or own a gun, they shouldn't own a cell phone either.The bill, introduced Tuesday by Democratic Sen. John Rodgers, says those under the age of 21 "are not developmentally mature enough" to posses and use cell phones safely.
