Police told Channel 2 “Verizon wrote off each of the stolen phones as a loss.” A report filed by a customer is what tipped off police.
The spokesman also sent a statement to the news station that said:
“Go Wireless has a longstanding Code of Conduct that in part states that we expect all our employees to demonstrate the highest standards of public trust and conduct which includes, among other things, protecting customer information. To that effect, GoWireless has a loss prevention department which investigates incidents involving employees and customers and works with police agencies in pursuing criminal prosecution, including restitution, where the facts and circumstances so warrant.”
