SAN ANTONIO -- A man is accused of stealing tens of thousands of dollars worth of iPhones.
According to an arrest warrant affidavit, Lee Garcia was an employee at a Castle Hills Cricket store. The affidavit states Garcia got a shipment of iPhones worth more than $20,000 that were meant for another store. Castle Hills police say Garcia took the box to his office and locked the door.
The affidavit says Garcia tried to get the phones "flashed" at another store, so they couldn't be traced and could be programmed for another carrier. But employees who saw him told their bosses, and Garcia was arrested.
The affidavit goes on to say Garcia even paid one of the employees $1,500 to keep quiet and threatened another one.
Garcia was arrested on theft charges.
