PEARL, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

According to Lt. Brian McGairty, on May 30 at approximately 4:30 a.m., four men entered Walmart in Pearl and went to the electronics department.

They went behind the glass container that holds electronics like tablets and cellphones. An employee saw them behind the counter and asked what they were doing. The men displayed hammers and threatened the employee that they would hit her if she came closer.

The men broke the glass container with their hammers and stole cell phones and tablets before running out the back of the building. 

The four were seen leaving the scene in a silver Chrysler 300 with no tag. 

The case is being investigated as an armed robbery. 

Additional information will be made available as the case unfolds. Hopefully surveillance and images will be out later today.
