ALPHARETTA, Ga. – A 19-year-old Fairburn man allegedly tried to steal nine iPhones from the Apple Store at North Point Mall Oct. 16.
A loss prevention worker at the store told police Charles L. Meadows, 19, of Fairburn, was in the store attempting to buy nine iPhone 5c phones using a fake Florida license and fake business account. The employee said he noticed Meadows the previous day at another Apple Store doing the same thing.
Police determined the license was indeed fake and that Meadows had warrants for his arrest for forgery, probation violation and failure to appear from metro agencies. A search of his car turned up another fake Florida license. Meadows had $1,135 in cash on him.
