A 24-year-old Atlanta man is a suspect in the fraudulent use of a credit card at the Apple Store at Bayshore Town Center in Glendale.
According to the police report:
The man entered the store, 5715 N. Centerpark Way, around 5:45 p.m. May 6.
The man said he was a “traveling graphic artist” and purchased two computer notebooks, software and covers valued at $6,006 using a credit card which was declined.
He then used his phone allegedly calling the credit card company and told the clerk the purchase was approved and handed him the phone. The employee wrote down what he thought was an authorization number and the suspect left with the items.
The manager discovered what had happened and called police and later they called the suspect who was “evasive” and “adamant” that the purchase was legitimate. The investigation is ongoing.
