‘Apple Picking’ targets Red Line riders, police say

BOSTON —The Massachusetts Bay Transit Authority is warning its riders about a rash of thefts of electronic devices since the beginning of the year.

The thefts, called ‘Apple Picking’ by authorities, generally target iPhones and other Apple products, police said.

Red Line riders have seen the largest number of thefts – 15 of the 25 reported to transit police since Jan 1.

Watch NewsCenter 5’s report

MBTA riders are being warned to avoid using their smartphones and to conceal the devices and other electronic equipment and, in the case of Apple products, to change the color of their ear buds because “would-be thieves look for the distinctive white ear plugs of Apple.”

Most thefts occur near the train doors just as the train enters the station, police said.


Classmates came to Kennebunk Middle School student’s aid

Kennebunk Fire Department

KENNEBUNK, Maine —A Maine student was injured Friday morning when the iPhone in her pants’ pocket caught fire.

Kennebunk Middle School Principal Jeff Rodman said the 13-year-old girl sat down in a classroom and heard a pop, and smoke began billowing from the back of her pants.

Rodman said three of her classmates came to her aid as her pants caught on fire.

One of the students went to get teachers who brought a blanket and an extinguisher to try to put out the fire, according to Rodman.

As they helped the girl get her pants off, the cellphone fell out of her pocket.

The school initiated a hold-in-place for about 20 minutes

Emergency crews arrived and took the girl to Southern Maine Medical Center in Biddeford, where she was treated for first- and second-degree burns.

Rodman sent a letter to parents of students informing them of the situation.
