FAIRFAX COUNTY, VA — Thousands of dollars worth of iPhones were stolen on March 15 from a Target stock room, police said.

Investigators say, a woman portrayed herself as an employee at a Target on Richmond Highway and gained access to the stockroom. Once inside, the Mount Vernon Police District says she put $40,000 worth of iPhones in a box and left the store.
