LOWER NAZARETH TWP., Pa. -

One of two men who shoplifted iPhones from an AT&T store and sold them to a nearby video game shop about a half-hour later is now in custody, officials said.

Sean M. Dohn and an accomplice stole an iPhone 4 worth $550 and an iPhone 5 worth $650 from the AT&T store at 3758 Dryland Way, Lower Nazareth Twp., Northampton Co., at about 8:30 p.m. March 25, officials said.

Dohn and his accomplice removed the security cords from the iPhones while AT&T employees were busy with other customers and then ran out of the store, officials said.

After watching AT&T surveillance video the next day, investigators visited the GameStop store at 3782 Easton Nazareth Highway, Lower Nazareth Twp., and determined Dohn was paid a total of $511.08 for the phones at about 8:55 p.m. the night before, officials said.

Game Stop surveillance video showed Dohn's accomplice was with him when he sold the phones, officials added.

Dohn, 21, of 209 Emily Way, Kunkletown, Monroe Co., was arraigned late Tuesday night on retail theft and conspiracy charges and committed to the Northampton County Prison on $3,000 bail, according to court documents.

A preliminary hearing is set for 9:30 a.m. May 10.
