Earlier this week, the NYPD asked for the public's help in identifying a suspect who allegedly stole numerous Apple products from Kickstarter's Brooklyn office. Now it turns out the suspect decided to turn himself in.
According to the police, the burglary took place on Wednesday, September 24, at 8:20 p.m.: "The suspect entered 58 Kent Street, the Kickstarter Company, by grabbing the door and not letting close after a food delivery." This is also known as tailgating. The NYPD added, "The suspect waited for the employees to leave the front door area and proceeded to enter the location. Once inside, the suspect removed 2 Macbook Pros, a Macbook Air and an Apple iPhone 5S. The suspect then fled the location."
Last night, the police said, "After seeing himself on television the suspect, a juvenile when he committed the crime, turned himself into the 94 Precinct Detective Squad with the property he removed from the location. He was charged as a juvenile and released to his parents with a family court date later in the month."
The teen was charged with criminal possession of stolen property and criminal trespass.
