A phone painter

A student arrived at 8:45 a.m. on Jan. 26 to make a report of larceny at the Oakland University Police Department. He stated that around midnight on Jan. 15, while playing on the baseball club team at the Sporting Dome, he lost his phone. He was unable to locate it, began searching the internet and believed that he had found it being sold on Facebook, as the two phones shared the same dent in the back. The seller seemed to be selling multiple phones. The complainant believed that the one that is his, the seller painted a rose gold color to sell and what he believed to be an altered timestamp on the photo. The complainant tried to contact the seller with no response, with police waiting for further theft verification to move forward.
