GREENSBORO, N.C. — A Greensboro man was arrested in connection with a series of thefts from businesses that sold cellular phones.

Juan Jose Luna, 32,  of 2206 Vanstory Street, was arrested on Sept. 21 after he was linked to the breaking and entering of the Boost Mobile Store located at 2922 High Point Rd. that same morning.

The store’s alarm was activated at approximately 3:45 a.m. after the glass on the store’s front door had been shattered. Police were able to obtain a description of the suspect and broadcast it to officers on patrol.

Shortly thereafter, an officer saw a person matching the suspect’s description walking on Vanstory Road. The officer gathered sufficient probable cause to arrest Luna for this incident and charge him with breaking and entering, damage to real property, and larceny.

Further investigation by detectives lead to Luna receiving additional charges in connection with similar crimes at:

  • Boost Mobile at 4411 High Point Rd. on Aug. 3
  • Sprint at 2100 S. Holden Rd. on Sept. 9
  • Conexia Hispana at 3739 High Point Rd. on Sept. 15
  • Sprint at 4205 W. Wendover Ave. on Sept. 17

Luna also faces a vandalism charge for attempting to pry open an automatic teller machine belonging to RBC Bank at 1316 Bridford Pkwy. on Aug. 25.

Luna is being held in the Guilford County Jail on a $25,000 secured bond. He has been nominated for electronic monitoring.
