    Police captured a smash-and-grab burglar only moments after the suspect smashed through the door of a mobile phone store.

    The burglar shattered the door of a T-Mobile retail location at 2801 N. Black Horse Pike in Williamstown, N.J. around 12:30 a.m. Friday, according to authorities.

    The man took off with nearly $2,000 worth of merchandise, including several iPads and smartphones, according to officials.

    But the suspect was unable to escape police, who happened to be positioned nearby.
