Robber steals iPhone, leaves his Samsung in its place

A man smashed a case in a Springfield wireless store and escaped with several iPhones, but the scheme was foiled by one glaring oversight: The robber, police say, left his own Samsung Galaxy at the scene of the crime.

    It’s official: Using Samsung products can get you arrested.

  • It wasn’t an oversight…

    Bait and switch? Probably thought no one would notice that the device he left was a fake iPhone.

      Nice try, bud.

      How about a little dose of reality: -Samsung has sold (aka. shipped) a total cumulative ~40M Galaxy devices (SII, SIII, S4) -Apple has sold (aka. actually sold) close to 50M iPhones (4, 4S, 5) in Q1 ’13 alone.

    So, he will be charged with improper waste disposal?
