ArrestedJermaal D. Maymon, age 23, Madison
Suspect was arrested for Theft and on a Probation Hold.
Victim(s)Female, age 16, Madison
DetailsThe suspect tried to pin the iPhone theft on another bus passenger, but Madison Metro surveillance video indicated otherwise. It showed the 23-year old Madison man taking a phone off a seat on which a 16-year old passenger had been traveling Sunday afternoon. She accidently forgot to grab it as she got up, and when she went back to collect it, it was gone. Police, working with Madison Metro, looked at video, which helped identify a suspect. When he was confronted about the crime yesterday, he told of seeing another guy taking the phone. He did not back off the story even after being told the video clearly showed him. He was arrested for theft. The phone was not immediately recovered.
