Two suspects are now in custody following a break-in at a cell phone store in Hermitage

It happened shortly after 1 a.m. Thursday at the Cricket Wireless store located in the shopping center at the corner of Lebanon Pike and Andrew Jackson Parkway.

Early Friday morning, Metro police arrested Christopher Carodine, 21, and Myles Williams, 20, for the crime.

The pair can be seen on surveillance video using a baseball bat to break the storefront glass to gain entry into the store.

The video shows the suspects taking as many as 12 Smartphones and other Smartphone accessories before leaving the store.

The entire smash-and-grab took less than two minutes, but the video reveals much more about the crime, including a timeline.

At 1:12 a.m., a four-door silver or gray pickup truck rolls by the storefront.  Investigators believe the truck was used by the two suspects.

Ten minutes later, at 1:22 a.m., the suspects walk past the storefront.  Two minutes later, the suspects reappear and break into the store.

Carodine and Williams were arrested following a Crime Stoppers tip that led police to the Avalon Apartments on Old Hickory Boulevard in Hermitage.

Officers spotted the truck from the video and initiated a traffic stop.

In the truck, officers recovered the stolen cell phones, accessories and the bat the suspects are believed to have used.

The men were each charged with burglary and booked into the Metro jail on $5,000 bonds.

Once in custody, police said the suspects confessed to the burglary and even apologized for what they did.

NOTE: News 2 has learned the time stamp on the surveillance video was not adjusted at the end of Daylight Saving Time and reflects a time one hour later than the actual time of the crime as reported above.
