August 25, 2022
Culver City police have arrested a man wearing an Amazon delivery vest after he allegedly tried to sell stolen Apple Airpods outside the local mall.
The suspect was speaking with a woman and her children in the parking lot when he noticed a police officer and quickly run to his car, CCPD said in a Facebook post.
“The officer learned from the woman that the subject was attempting to sell stolen merchandise,” CCPD said. “The officer made a traffic stop on the subject who claimed he was an Amazon employee, which was false information.”
During the investigation, the officer found 15 boxes of Apple Airpods and over $3800 in cash inside the suspect’s car, police said. The officer also “learned that the Airpods were taken in a burglary in the city of Industry.”
The suspect, whose name has not been released, was arrested on burglary charges and transported to the local jail for booking.
