EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (WKBT) - The Eau Claire Police Department arrested four men in a string of cell phone store burglaries, according to a media release.

Five burglaries in the city of Eau Claire at Verizon Wireless, Sprint PCS and Smart Choice Mobile were investigated over the past two months by the Eau Claire police. Similar burglaries happened at Verizon Wireless stores in Lake Hallie and Menomonie and a Sprint PCS store in Hudson which police found were done by the same group of men, the release said.
