“This whole lost iPhone 5 prototype story just got whole lot more interesting,” Todd Haselton reports for BGR. “According to SF Weekly, six investigators claiming to be members of the San Francisco police department descended upon one Bernal Heights, San Francisco man’s home in search of a lost iPhone 5 prototype that CNET originally reported had been left in a bar. The scary part? The SFPD confirmed the investigators weren’t police officers at all. Instead, it appears as though they may have actually been members of Apple’s security team allegedly impersonating police officers.”
“The officers in question claimed that they had traced the iPhone 5 to the man’s [Sergio Calderon] house using the device’s GPS feature,” Haselton reports. “Reportedly, the police force that did investigate Calderon offered him a number to call if he found any more information on the device. SF Weekly called the number and Anthony Colon, an Apple employee answered the call. Colon is currently employed by Apple as a ‘senior investigator,’ and he once worked for the San Jose police department.”
Haselton reports, “The San Francisco Police Department stated that it would only launch an investigation into the matter if Calderon decides to speak with them directly.”
