The Deer Park Apple Store, a frequent target by out-of-town criminals trying to obtain merchandise by fraudulent methods, has been struck once again.

On Saturday afternoon, March 4, Lake County Sheriff’s deputies, responding to a call by store officials of suspicious activities at the store, rushed to the scene at 7:15 p.m. Two suspects were arrested after deputies said they tried to open accounts at the store fraudulently.

Deputies determined that the suspects were attempting to use the identities of other unsuspecting individuals to open fraudulent accounts to obtain Apple products.

The suspects were identified as Sterling L. Kimbrough, 21, and Zavonnti Glasker, 22, both of Detroit.

Deputies determined that the suspects were attempting to use the identities of other unsuspecting individuals to open fraudulent accounts to obtain Apple products, according to Sgt. Christopher Covelli, sheriff’s office spokesperson.

Each suspect was charged with burglary and two counts of identity theft, said Covelli. Both are being held in Lake County Jail, each on a $150,000 bond. They are both to appear in court on March 8.
