VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (WAVY) – Police are trying to identify a suspect who they say fraudulently offered to sell Apple computer products.

Tonya Borman with the Virginia Beach Police Department said the suspect took money from citizens on two occasions. On Feb. 19, police said the suspect approached someone in the 1600 block of General Booth Boulevard and offered to sell Apple products at a discounted price. The suspect allegedly used the same approach on a different victim on Feb. 21, this time in the 1100 block of Pacific Avenue.

Borman said on both occasions, the suspect received money for the products, but never came back. The combined loss at this time is more than $1,500.

The suspect is described as a black male in his 50s, 5’9” to 5’10” tall, weighing 220 to 250 pounds.
