He bought a bad Apple.
Bronx pastor Tyrone Holmes thought he’d purchased a new MacBook on Amazon, but instead, he was sent a laptop that previously belonged to a secretive oil pump company.
The company asked the NYPD to get the computer back, and the police warned he would be placed under arrest unless he returned the 15-inch laptop, an ongoing lawsuit alleges.
Holmes ordered the $1,799.99 MacBook Pro on June 22, 2016, along with a $345.50 AppleCare protection plan, according to his Manhattan Federal Court suit.
But on Sept. 8, NYPD Detective Rodrigo Caballero rolled up to Holmes’ home and started asking his neighbors where he was, the suit states.
Caballero called Holmes the next day and informed him that his MacBook contained “sensitive” surveillance software — and that he and other cops went to his home to take the device.
