AVON, Ind. (WTHR) - An apparent robbery at an Avon phone store was foiled Thursday afternoon as efforts to protect such stores are paying off.

In surveillance video, two men are seen trying to enter a T-Mobile store on U.S. 36. They're halted when they find the door locked.

Workers are seen safe inside, rushing to call police.

Thieves have been targeting phone stores in recent months and police have asked stores to start taking extra security steps, including keeping doors locked during the day.
