Police say a man stole more than $10,000 worth of iPhones from a Target store at a Northern Virginia mall late last week after posing as a worker. 

The man went to customer service at the Springfield mall store Oct. 19 and said he was a Target Mobile employee, Fairfax County Police said in a release on their website Tuesday. After getting keys to the stockroom, the man took the iPhones from a secured box inside and then hid them in his backpack, police said. 

Police said the suspect was wearing a black T-shirt, khaki pants and navy/white Air Jordan shoes and had a black Nike "swoosh" backpack. He traveled to the store in what police believe was a black Toyota sedan, they said.
