SFPD Releases Full Text Statement Over Lost iPhone Investigation
September 2, 2011
SAN FRANCISCO POLICE ASSIST APPLE SECURITY
WITH THIER LOST PROPERTY INVESTIGATION
After speaking with Apple representatives, we were given information which helped us determine what occurred. It was discovered that Apple employees called Mission Police station directly, wanting assistance in tracking down a lost item. Apple had tracked the lost item to a house located in the 500 block of Anderson Street. Because the address was in the Ingleside Police district Apple employees were referred to Officers in the Ingleside district. Four SFPD Officers accompanied Apple employees to the Anderson street home. The two Apple employees met with the resident and then went into the house to look for the lost item. The Apple employees did not find the lost item and left the house.
The Apple employees did not want to make an official report of the lost item.
This clarifies the situation, where it was allegedly reported Apple investigators posed as police during their search of the house for the missing ‘iPhone 5’. What’s intriguing about this whole situation is how the SFPD has flip flopped their answers about this investigation to SF Weekly, and made it appear as though Apple didn’t want them to say anything.
