Police Arrest Two for Allegedly Selling Fake iPhones

(LANHAM, Md.) -- Two men have been arrested after police say they were caught selling fake iPhone devices in Lanham, Md.

The suspects have been identified as 47-year-old Daniel Parker and 25-year-old Harold Parker.

In a statement Thursday, Prince George's County Police said they received a tip from two Lanham businesses that a scam was taking place outside their stores, with officers then going to the scene and arresting the pair after they tried selling one of the fake phones to a detective.

ABC affiliate WJLA-TV reports that the men were trying to pass the devices off as the recently unveiled iPhone 5.
