FLORENCE, Ala.  (WHNT) - Two men go on a high-tech heist in the Shoals.

Florence Police say the suspects got away with nearly a dozen cell phones.

According to investigators, a man browsed the aisles of the Florence Wal-Mart for nearly four hours, scouting out his high-end target, then made his move.

According to detectives the man stole nine iPhones and two Samsung Galaxy smartphones.

Next, investigators say he passed the shopping cart over to an accomplice.

Authorities hope the suspect's uncommon blue and white fedora hat may be the link to cracking the case.

If you know who swiped the phones right off the shelves, turn them in for a possible cash reward.
