SOUTH HANOVER TWP., Pa. — State Police say a father and two sons worked together to steal an iPhone 6 from a Verizon store. Police were called to the store located at 237 Hershey Rd. around 7:10pm on June 23rd. After reviewing security video, police saw how the theft went down. The suspect and his two sons entered the store together. The two sons initially distracted the clerk in the back of the store by asking him questions. Meanwhile, the father went towards the store entrance and disabled an iPhone. The father then walked towards the clerk and said something to the two sons in a foreign language. Then it was the father’s turn to distract the clerk as the sons went back towards the front of the store. One of them put the iPhone into his pocket, and left the store. The father left shortly after the sons. The employee confronted the father in the parking lot and was able to write down a Texas temporary registration of 404728D.
