Apple now acting as police, INS agents??!

So the police are now letting "Apple personnel" search people's
homes? How compliant.

San Francisco (CNN) -- Police officials said they helped Apple
investigators, who searched a man's home here recently.

They were reportedly looking for a prototype of the next iPhone that
an Apple employee left in a bar in San Francisco's Mission
neighborhood, according to CNET. Apple had contacted the police
claiming the prototype is invaluable, the report says.

Four San Francisco Police officers escorted Apple investigators to a
home in the city's Bernal Heights neighborhood, the statement said.
The two Apple employees searched the home while the officers waited
outside, police said. They did not find the item there and declined to
file a police report, according to the statement.

An Apple spokesman declined to comment.

A city police official declined to comment to CNN and referred
reporters to the news release. Earlier this week, officials said they
had no record of an investigation.

In the statement sent to CNN and other news media late Friday, police
did not describe what "lost item" Apple was looking for. However, the
file name of that news release is "iphone5.doc," as Reuters pointed
out.

Lt. Troy Dangerfield gave an interview to SF Weekly Friday afternoon
confirming the police's involvement with Apple in the investigation.

SF Weekly also interviewed a man who told the publication that he
consented to having his home searched for a phone by six officers last
month. No one in the group identified himself as being an Apple
employee, the man told SF Weekly. He reportedly said that he assumed
they were all police officials and would not have permitted entry if
he knew the searchers were from Apple.

Apple's team searched the home, car and computer files, while police
waited outside, the reports say. The investigators reportedly told the
man that they had traced the phone's GPS signal to his house. When
asked, he said he had been at the same bar where the phone was
reportedly lost but that he didn't have it, the report says.

One of the investigators, who identified himself as Tony, gave the man
living in the house a phone number and told him to call with any
information about the lost phone, the report says. When the SF Weekly
reporter called, a man named Anthony Colon, who said he was an Apple
employee, answered, the report says.

Colon's LinkedIn profile, which he eventually removed, said he is a
senior investigator for Apple and a former San Jose police sergeant.

The man, who reportedly said he's a U.S. citizen who lives with
relatives, told SF Weekly that the people searching his home
questioned his family's immigration status.

The man could not be reached by CNN for comment.

The situation is reminiscent of when an Apple engineer's prototype
iPhone 4 was taken from a bar in Redwood City, also in the Bay Area,
and sold to the blog Gizmodo, which published the first pictures of
the device.

Last year, Apple worked with the Rapid Enforcement Allied Computer
Team task force to search the homes of the man who allegedly sold the
device and of Gizmodo editor Jason Chen.

REACT leader Michael Sterner said none of his officers were present at
the home that was searched last month. He declined to comment further,
citing a policy that prevents him from discussing investigations that
are open or being handled by another department.

Apple has a history of working with REACT but apparently did not seek
its services this time. The task force has struggled recently over
budget constraints, prompting the organization to shut down an office
and employ fewer officers, Sterner said.

Nor did Apple enlist the Federal Bureau of Investigation. An FBI
spokesman said the cyber-program leader was not aware of such an
investigation.

Last time, an Apple employee lost his phone at a German beer garden.
This time, it happened on Saturday, July 23 at tequila bar Cava 22,
said Jose Valle, the bar's manager and the owner's son. A man called
two days in a row after that, asking anxiously whether Valle had found
an iPhone, he said.

At Apple's expense, Cava 22 seemed to benefit from the news coverage.
The bar drew an unusually large crowd Wednesday night after the news
broke, Valle said.

CNET had been working with the police for two weeks, and officials
failed to uncover any reports of a search, police spokesman Albie
Esparza told CNN. Apple had not returned the official's phone call on
Thursday, he said. In a message to Apple, the official told the
company that he would refer reporters to its spokespeople if he did
not receive a call.

Police spokespeople say they weren't briefed on the investigation,
which involved Apple and the police, until Friday. The mixup may be
attributed to Apple's unwillingness to file a formal report or with a
lack of communication between the various police departments involved.

Police do not typically lie to reporters, even when discussing ongoing
investigations, said Rebecca Lonergan, a former federal prosecutor who
is now a professor at the University of Southern California's law
school. However, in some cases, they are allowed to mislead suspects,
she said.

Was that an original story investigated by you, or did you plagiarize again?

There is something in this writing that sounds like a cut of whole cloth:
Especially, but not limited to: "police don't lie"
