    He did pay for "stolen" merchandise. IIRC that is a felony in CA.

    If they would have returned the device before being contacted, I would bet Apple would be playing nice. But they took it apart, photographed and posted it and Apple had to lawyer up to get it back. You can bet they are going to burn him. (Or at least try)

    They received what is clearly stolen merchandise. I would be arrested if I did that, so why not them? I don't care about the iphone but the law is the law.
