Report: mystery men "impersonated" police in search for missing iPhone 5 (Updated)

Following Apple's loss of another iPhone prototype, a San Francisco man reported that a group of men claiming to be police officers appeared at his home and demanded to search it for the cellphone. One of the searchers gave him a card and a phone number which, according to SFweekly, reaches an Apple investigator by the name of Anthony Colon. SFPD denies working with Apple to hunt down the phone, and impersonating a police officer is a crime. Colon, according to his resumé, has worked at Apple only a short time; perhaps he will not be there much longer.

Update: SFPD now says it did help in Apple's investigation.
