A father and son were arrested in Prince George's County for allegedly selling counterfeit iPhones, according to police.
Police were tipped off by two businesses at the Vista Gardens Marketplace in Lanham that Daniel Parker, 47 of Capitol Heights, and Harold Parker, 25, of the District, were scamming customers outside their stores with fake iPhones, which they sold for as much as $250.
The men were arrested on Sept. 12, when they offered the counterfeit product to an undercover Prince George's County police officer.
The Parkers face charges of counterfeiting, theft between $1,000 and $10,000, and doing business without a license.
