San Fran PD looking for security footage at lost iPhone bar
CNET is reporting that the San Francisco Police Department is poking around local bar Cava 22, the same establishment where a prototype iPhone was supposed to have been lost a little while ago. The owner of the bar says that the SFPD came by asking for surveillance videotape of July 21 and 22 (the days the phone was supposedly lost in the bar), and while he's got it and is willing to share, he hasn't heard back from the officers.
But there may be more going on here than just a lost iPhone; this is of course the same case where SFPD officers "assisted" Apple in an investigation, going so far as to wait while Apple detectives entered a citizen's home, apparently searching for information related to the lost iPhone. The SFPD is investigating that situation (though the department does admit that the "assistance" took place), and it's possible that this surveillance footage is for that research.
At any rate, the case isn't exactly closed. Unfortunately, it's unlikely that we'll ever hear anything else about this one, unless the cops did violate the law in some way by helping Apple's investigation. Even if a lost iPhone was found, Apple wouldn't exactly go yelling it from the rooftops, and the SFPD probably won't be happy to publicize any of their officers' behavior, either. The investigation may still be ongoing, but we'll have to wait and see if and when the public is let in on any of its findings.
