An Oakland man was arrested Friday after he was allegedly caught trying to buy an iPhone at a San Carlos Best Buy with a fake ID and altered credit cards, the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office said today. Larry Levi fled the Industrial Road store after Sheriff’s deputies were alerted around 3:30 p.m. to the attempted purchase, Lt. Larry Schumaker said. Deputies and a police dog pursued him and searched the area around the nearby Home Depot and Lucky Supermarket,
before finding Levi hiding under a tarp. Levi was treated for a dog bite received during his capture and arrested on suspicion of commercial burglary and forgery. He was later found to be on parole for Alameda County drug charges.
