A Bronx man stole over $8,000 worth of Apple iPhones and Apple Watches delivered in packages to Trumbull addresses, police say.  
Jesus Felix, age 23, of the Bronx, was charged with larceny for stealing the packages.
Trumbull police say they were notified that Felix was driving around taking recently delivered packages from addresses near Inwood Road and Springwood Drive at around 12 p.m. on Jan 4.  
Felix was seen stealing the delivered packages from the exterior of the residences and then getting into a white Mercedes-Benz.
When police confronted him, Felix told investigators he was picking up a package for his girlfriend who lives in the Dominican Republic and who mistakenly ordered an iPhone to to the wrong address.
Police say they found two packages containing Apple iPhones that were sent to different Trumbull residences, and several unopened packages containing three additional Apple Pro Max iPhones, and three Apple Ultra iWatches that were unused and in their original boxes, which had also just been delivered.
Felix denied telling officers where the additional packages came from.
Police say the names on the labels of the Trumbull packages did not match the residents whose homes the items were delivered to.
Felix was then arrested and charged with larceny. He was held on a $10,000 bond and is scheduled to appear in Bridgeport Superior Court on Jan. 13.
