Jan. 21, 2013 4:28 p.m. | A man's call led police to arrest a 16-year-old Milwaukee boy who allegedly was selling boxes containing watches, batteries and coins as iPhones.

According to the Wauwatosa police report:

The man met up with the boy at McDonald's, 12324 W. North Ave., at 6 p.m. Jan. 13, thinking he was going to buy an iPhone for $220.

The boy asked to see the cash before letting the man open the box. The man forked over the money, and the boy dropped the box and ran out of the store.

The man opened the box and much to his dismay, AAA batteries sat in place of his would-be iPhone.
