San Francisco Man Says Visitors Impersonating Police Searched His Home Looking for Lost iPhone 5 Prototype

Nice reporting by Peter Jamison at SF Weekly:

If accurate, his account raises the possibility that Apple security personnel attempting to recover the prototype falsely represented themselves as police officers — a criminal act punishable by up to a year in jail in the state of California — or that SFPD employees colluding with Apple failed to properly report an extensive search of a person’s home, car, and computer.

Cook’s first crisis at the helm?

Update: SF police now confirm they were involved.
