Derby police are looking for a suspected cell phone thief.

“Over the past few days, Derby police investigated three thefts from cell phone stores in the area of Pershing Drive,” police said in a statement Wednesday.

The man, who was captured on surveillance video, isn’t exactly smooth.

“Employees said the suspect asked questions about a phone and then took off running from the store with the phone,” police said.

The crimes have been happening in the afternoon.
