NORTH HAVEN, Conn. (WTNH) — North Haven police say an employee at Verizon Wireless helped stop a fraudulent transaction from taking place.

According to police, on Wednesday around 5 p.m., a man attempted to purchase an iPhone X. Officials say he produced a fake New Jersey license and a counterfeit credit card in someone else’s name.

After becoming suspicious, the employee contacted police.
