London police have issued an appeal to find a man they wish to speak with in connection with the theft of 252 Apple iPhone 5 smartphones from a mobile phone retailer in the south of the city.
The suspect has been named as 23-year-old Usman Sethi who works as a sales assistant at the O2 Store in the Tandem Centre in Wimbledon.
The store had taken delivery of the new phones which were due to go on sale
at 9am this morning. The police say that 252 of the phones were taken from the
store at 1:30am this morning. His actions were caught on the store's internal security cameras.
A quantity of cash was also stolen from the safe.
Police also wish to speak with Mr Sethi in connection with the theft on Friday morning of jewellery belonging to a family member from his home address in Audley Gardens.
It can be presumed that 252 extremely angry Apple fans would like to speak to him as well.
Anyone who has seen Mr Sethi or has information that would assist the investigation should call Merton CID on 020 8649 3062. To remain anonymous call Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.
