Call it the case of the dead cells - both telephones and the ones in the brain.

Employees at a Telefonica Movistar cell-phone store in Morelia, Mexico say they arrived one recent morning to find that the store had been broken into.



An examination of the shop revealed the only items missing were hollow replica phones for display that are completely useless for making calls.



Employees say the clueless thieves overlooked real mobile phones and cash in another part of the shop.



Store owners nonetheless reported the theft to local police, who are investigating.
