Hundreds of fake products were taken from the Cyberion store and ST Tech Pros kiosk in Arundel Mills Mall.
The items recovered included iPhones and the colored fronts and backings that go with them, cellphone conversion kits, iPhone and iPad covers, Apple product ID stickers, iPad replacement screens and various internal iPhone parts. Detectives also found packaging materials, equipment used to design and print those materials and computer equipment believed to be used to clone phones.
"Our investigators believe that they were acting as some type of authorized Apple repair shop and they were taking Apple phones and replacing them with interior parts that were inferior, that were fake, that were not Apple products," said officer Greg Shipley.
"These companies are printing the name Apple. They are putting the logo on there. They are doing what they can to cover up the fact these are counterfeit, but even some of the things they're doing are very simple like putting a black sticker over it to try to cover up something that notes it's counterfeit," Shipley said.
