Menlo Park: iPhone heist alleged at Facebook headquarters

 

Approximately 30 iPhones ended up in a silver Lexus rather than remaining in storage at Facebook headquarters on Friday, Jan. 23, according to Menlo Park police.

The incident led to the arrest of Phuong Nguyen, a 44-year-old San Jose resident, who has been charged with second-degree burglary and theft.

Mr. Nguyen was at the Hacker Way site as a contract technician when Facebook's security staff spotted the alleged iPhone theft on surveillance footage and called police around 10 a.m., according to the police report. He had been buzzed in to a storage room, police said, and officers later found the alleged stolen property in his car.
