TROY, Mich. (WJBK) -

A call to police was enough to put a pair of suspected burglars out of business.

Acting on a tip police in Troy say they were able to arrest two men suspected of stealing more than 100 iPhones from Partners in Progress, a cell phone repair business.

Investigators say a citizen reported two suspicious men had parked a vehicle at Chicago and Maple and then walked south carrying duffle bags. When officers arrived the men dropped their bags and ran in opposite directions. With the help from a Royal Oak Police K9 unit both men were arrested a short time later. Officers followed the men's footprints in the snow to the cell phone business where they found someone had broken a window to get inside. 

27-year-old Brandon Albert Dean and 28-year-old Clarence Jerald Boger have been arraigned on charges of "Breaking and Entering." Bond was set at $20,000 cash or surety bond for Dean and $5,000 cash or surety for Boger.

    Going off to college is an exciting time for the entire family, especially for the upcoming freshman. But with technology, parents can be in touch all the time.
