Santa Clara County sheriffs are said to be looking into whether any laws were broken in the sale of an iPhone prototype.

Tech blog Gizmodo says they paid $5,000 for the fourth generation iPhone to someone who found it in a Redwood City bar.

But in California, keeping lost property when you know who owns it is considered theft.

Gizmodo says it returned the phone to Apple after they asked for it back.
