Man posing as a Sprint employee walks off with $10K worth of iPhones

ST. PETERS, MO - A man stole thousands of dollar’s worth of cell phones from two Sprint stores by posing as an employee.

According to St. Peters Police Officer Melissa Doss on February 19th a man walked into a Sprint store wearing a Sprint jacket and acting like he worked for the company. Doss said the man convinced an employee that he was there to pick up iPhones for a different store.

The suspect then walked out of the store with $10,000 worth of iPhone X’s. Doss said the suspect also hit a Sprint store in Creve Coeur that same day stealing phones from there too.

He is caught on surveillance video in both stores and Doss is hoping someone recognizes the man.
