“A San Francisco man whose home was searched by Apple security officials hunting for a missing, unreleased iPhone is in discussions with the computer maker, his attorney said,” Declan McCullagh and Greg Sandoval report for CNET.

“Two Apple employees claimed they had traced the errant device to the residence of Sergio Calderon, 22, and then visited his house with four plainclothes officers from the San Francisco Police Department in late July,” McCullagh and Sandoval report. “Calderon, who has said he was led to believe everyone who entered the house was a police officer, has hired attorney David Monroe.”
