One Apple iPhone 4S gets stolen twice in the same day

phone and to always keep aware of her surroundings, she had her ear buds on as hip hop was blasting loudly into her ears. Suddenly, a group of three boys were in her face demanding her iPhone. A tug of war ensued and one of the boys grabbed the phone. The victim was left empty handed with the memory of the thug's pink sneakers filling her head. She managed to flag down a cop who took her cruising the park for the thief, but it was to no avail.
Meanwhile, let's turn our attention to the thief, the boy who won the tug of war and stole the Apple iPhone 4S. His intent was to convert it to cash quickly, so he heads to Flatbush and Bedford Avenue where he encounters a possible buyer. But before the buyer lays out his hard earned cash for the device, he needs to take a closer look to make sure the phone is, in fact, working. So the potential buyer gets his hands on the phone and takes off. For the second time in one afternoon, this particular handset is stolen. But the story gets better.
The original thief, now out his stolen property, flags down one of New York's finest and acting like a victim, convinces the cop that he just had his Apple iPhone 4S lifted. Luckily, the second thief was either slow, stupid, or both and was quickly apprehended. Everyone got a ride to the 70th precinct, or as they say on New York based cop shows on television, the seven-oh.
The 16 year old girl received her Apple iPhone 4S back and as of last Thursday, there have been no further incidents since the robbery. We're not sure Apple would use it, but how about this for a tag line on the next television spot. "The Apple iPhone, the smartphone in so much demand that the same one was stolen twice in one day." As New York Post columnist Cindy Adams would say, "Only in New York".

Lul who wants an iPhone 4s anymore? I mean, I don't want to sound like too much of a hater, but I'd much rather steal an s3.

Why would you steal an android device if they are handing them out for free here from any US carrier?

Have you heard of water-diamond factor? water is so important to our life, we will die without them, and why nobody steal it? Simply because it's mainstream... whereas the diamond, it is gimmick, and as useless as a brick... Why the thief still steal the diamond? Go figure

I bet a diamond would buy you a year supply of water, but water wouldnt buy you a diamond. Its all supply and demand. The supply of water is more than the supply of diamonds. Same goes for anything. Yea it might not be the best handset out there but its still a great handset. And a thief is gonna try to make a buck anyway they can.

I hate to burst your bubble but S3 owners aren't as feeble-minded as the 16,000+ iVictims bopping around NYC asking to be iPhone raped by rosy-pink sneaker-wearing thugs. 1. If you're stupid enough to steal something and, then 2. Limit your ambition to steal to an outdated smartphone, while 3. Wearing PINK thug sneakers, then 4. Your life is as pathetic as the outdated phone you so unambitiously strive to steal and your pink-sneaker-wearing thug-@$$ belongs in jail. But, gives thanks to our legal system because you'll be on the streets again in two weeks (making thug babies)!

Look on gazelle, Craigslist, eBay, etc. you'll see that iPhones consistently command the most money model for model. iPhones hold their resale value better than any other phones out there... It's just a fact, not bashing anyone. Stealing and reselling an iPhone on the black market will command much more money than an s3.

1) Just cause you own a particular phone does not make you smarter. 2) Iphone has a much higher resale value than any android device. And before someone starts trolling and calling me an isheep I currently own and use an S3, motorola maxx hd and nexus 7. I may not agree with darkjedi on a lot of things but stop hating cause someone is right.

no Mr thief!! Don't!! I'm innocent!!! Nooooo!!!! Back to the serious parts, when you think the thief is bad, that doesnt mean the girl is totally right... You got stole once, should be more cautious tho... Not being careless twice :) either way, they won't steal mine tho, considered my iPhone4/4s are shattered, one I dropped it on purpose, and the other one I bought it shattered-made, come catch me if you can :p

People steal iPhones because of their high resale value . Besides why you people hates iPhones like they killed or raped your mom anyway . But if I'm a thief , I would steal iPhones and use the money I got to buy a HTC 8X , I ain't running around with a stolen handset
