Two men robbed a Radio Shack in Chicago Heights at gunpoint Friday afternoon, police said.

According to police, the men walked into the store with a gun about 12:30 p.m. They ordered the store’s two employees and customers to remove their phones.

The men filled a laundry bag with the cell phones as well as video recorders and DVD players, police said. They left the store after ordering everyone into the bathroom.

Police traced one of the phones back to a house in Park Forest, according to police. They searched the house and recovered some of the property from the robbery.

No one was in the house and no arrests have been made, police said.
