WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. - After a brief chase on S. Broadway and a resolved identity dispute, police arrested two Bronx teens who officers say stole nearly $6,000 worth of laptops from the local Apple store this week.
Officers arrived at the Westchester Mall Apple store around 10:10 a.m. Wednesday. Store staff told police two young men walked out with five MacBook Air laptops.
While canvassing the area, police spotted two teens running out of 60 S. Broadway. According to police reports, officers caught up with the suspects near 44 S. Broadway.
One of the teens, a 16-year-old from the Bronx, was arrested and charged with one count of third-degree grand larceny, a felony.
The other suspect told police he was 13 and was brought back to Woodfield Cottage, a youth detention center in Valhalla. Woodfield Cottage staff told officers the teen wasn't 13 and didn't go by the name he had previously told police.
Police looked into the boy's identity and discovered he had lied about his name and age. The suspect, a 16-year-old from the Bronx, was arrested Thursday and charged with one count of third-degree grand larceny, a felony, and one count of false personation, a misdemeanor.
