SAN ANTONIO – San Antonio police and Crime Stoppers are looking for the person who brandished a weapon and stole from a South Side cellphone store.

The incident occurred Nov. 6 around 2:30 p.m. at a Cricket Wireless store in the 1100 block of Southeast Military Drive, not far from Roosevelt Avenue.

According to police, the suspect walked into the store and motioned to the clerk to stay quiet by placing a finger to his lips.
