The NYPD released photos of two men accused of robbing a straphanger of an iPhone on Monday, July 9.

The incident occurred on a northbound Q train at the Kings Highway train station.

If you have information about the men in the photos, call 800-577-TIPS. You can also submit tips at www.NYPDCRIMESTOPPERS.

Thanks to Thomas C. for the tip.

    These guys are gonna have to go back to snatching purses now that Verizon, AT&T and others have partnered with the FCC to create a database banning any phone with a lost or stolen serial number.  That should cut down the resale value on these things tremendously.

      I don’t know if this a such a good idea. It has been implemented in the United Kingdom for a while.

        How is it a bad idea?  If your phone is stolen, it becomes a useless pile of plastic.  If you lose it, you wind up getting another anyway.

        Once this system goes live, you’ll have to stop buying your iPhones from bodega back rooms.

        The UK Gov’t hates it.  The Gov’t is responsible for your property since you pay the police to protect you and your property.  Taxes are an insurance premium.
