Fake Courier Steals $58K in iPhones from Apple Store, NYPD Says


Police are searching for the man who swindled an Apple store employee out of $58,000 worth of iPhones.

The employee then handed over three large boxes, containing roughly 100 iPhone 7 devices worth approximately $58,000 United States dollars. Right after the store opened at 9:06 a.m., police say the impostor entered the store and told an employee "he was a messenger and was there for a pick up".

The man fled the scene "in a white Ford van with unknown license plates" according to the Associated Press.

The NYPD was asking for the public's help to find the iPhone thief.

Surveillance footage shows the suspect - last seen wearing a blue T-shirt, camouflage trousers and black sneakers - standing inside the store near its trademark spiral staircase.

Apple launched two new phones, the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus, in September.

He was described as about 45 to 55 years old, bald, standing 5-foot-10 and weighing 195 pounds, police said.
