Chippewa County, Wis (WEAU) - Two men police say stole iPhones and then stole merchandise from a local Walmart have been charged.
Online records show Yusef Ali, 22, of Minneapolis is charged with seven counts including retail theft and two counts of obstructing an officer in Chippewa County. Said Mohamed, 22, is charged with two counts of retail theft and three counts of obstructing an officer.
In late July, police say they stole the phones from the AT&T store on Commercial Boulevard in Chippewa Falls. Then police say officers spotted the vehicle they were in outside a Walmart, and arrested them after they came out of the store with more stolen goods.
Officers later determined the van the two were in was stolen from Minneapolis.
