6th Alleged Co-Conspirator Charged in Cell Phone Theft Ring
A sixth Philadelphia resident has been charged in connection with an alleged cell phone theft ring which authorities said cheated the Bensalem Walmart store out of $76,000 in lost reimbursements.

Khalil D. Harvin, 26, of the 4600 block of Boudinot Street, was arrested and charged with felony counts of theft by deception, conspiracy-theft by deception, receiving stolen property and conspiracy-receiving stolen property.

Bensalem Police allege that Harvin, who reportedly used the alias of Khalil Brown, conspired with Walmart employee Isaiah Butler to receive five Galaxy S4 cell phones worth $2,805 as part of a larger cell phone theft ring, which police said involved the  resale of 131 iPhones on the street for profit.

The cell phone contracts were filled out with "bad biographical information," according to court documents, including an incorrect last name and date of birth, for Harvin. 

Harvin is being held in the Bucks County Correctional Facility in lieu of $75,000 bail. He awaits a preliminary hearing on Wednesday.
