Identity theft

Original post made on Mar 2, 2012

Any given week, Pleasanton police respond to between five and 15 reports of identity theft. On Feb. 27, for example, two people were arrested at Motel 6 with items linked to identity theft -- document-making equipment, credit cards not in their names, fictitious drivers licenses, fictitious registration tags, computer equipment and computer disks (see police bulletin, page 14).

"Do not jail break your iPhone -- illegal but commonly done to get around the restrictions that Apple puts in place."

Reallllly? Did the police department come up with that or did the Weekly? What penal code section is being violated there? Who has gone to jail for that one?

I think the proper term would be "voids the warranty".

I think the editor had our annoying PW troll (slippers, faye, unions and teachers are very bad, etc.) in mind while crafting this article.
