Well it seems that the SFPD actually did have knowledge of the missing iPhone 5 prototype unlike they have said in the past. The SFPD said they accompanied 2 secret Apple detectives to Calderón’s home where Calderón didn’t have the phone and denied ever having the phone.
The San Francisco Weekly Reports:
“Contradicting past statements that no records exist of police involvement in the search for the lost prototype, San Francisco Police Department spokesman Lt. Troy Dangerfield now tells SF Weekly that “three or four” SFPD officers accompanied two Apple security officials in an unusual search of a Bernal Heights man’s home.
Dangerfield says that, after conferring with Apple and the captain of the Ingleside police station, he has learned that plainclothes SFPD officers went with private Apple detectives to the home of Sergio Calderón, a 22-year-old resident of Bernal Heights. According to Dangerfield, the officers “did not go inside the house,” but stood outside while the Apple employees scoured Calderón’s home, car, and computer files for any trace of the lost iPhone 5. The phone was not found, and Calderón denies that he ever possessed it.”
There you have it. Seems like all of this is confusing right? Well it is. I will continue to update you with all of this as it happens.
