Cops: Man nabbed for selling fake iPads outside of Daytona Save-A-Lot
Victim says she bought fake iPad for $400
Volusia County deputies arrested man who they say sold a fake iPad to a woman in a Save-A-Lot parking lot on Friday.
Torrence Canady, 39, has been charged with grand theft after police say he sold the fake iPad, which was in a FedEx box to the victim for $400. Police said the victim was approached by Canady in the parking lot on Nova Road, told her he needed money to get home and he had an iPad for sale. When the victim opened the box when she got home it was just glass with an iPad advertisement and an extension cord wrapped in bubble wrap.
Deputies stopped Canady during a traffic stop, in which he lied about his name to avoid being arrested for a Miami warrant. Deputies found two Apple iPads and two Macbook Pros, which were later determined to be fake. Canady told deputies he didn't know the computers were fake and that two of the computers were for a girlfriend.
The victim was able to identify Canady in a photo lineup.
