The manager found a record in Apple’s purchasing system of the two also having bought iPads earlier in the day with fraudulent identities at a store in Farmington.

Police arrived and arrested the couple, who remained in Salt Lake County Jail Monday without bail, booked on suspicion of second-degree felony communications fraud and third-felony forgery counts.
