Police: Cell Phone Stolen En Route to Purchaser

A cell phone worth $250 was stolen from a Hempstead Drive man while it was en route to his home last week, police said.

Muhammed Anifowoshe told police that he’d bought an HTC Droid phone online, which was supposed to be delivered to his home by the U.S. Postal Service.

Anifowoshe said that he used the USPS tracking service and found that the package was received at the Somerset post office on DeMott Lane on Oct. 8, and was reported delivered to his home on Oct. 9.

Anifowoshe told police that he asked his mail carrier about it the next day, but said she had no recollection of delivering a package to his house.

The USPS was contacted to investigate, Anifowoshe told police. He said the vendor reported that by Oct. 11 the phone had not been activated.
