TechCrunch iPhone story cites wrong police agency

Bug Type:  Mistaken Identity

This article says that the Santa Clara County Police Department is investigating the stolen iPhone incident. The Santa Clara County Police Department does not exist. Further on, the article mentions the Santa Clara Police Department. It is most likely that Santa Clara PD would not investigate this incident since nothing involving this story happened in Santa Clara. Furthermore, I do not think Santa Clara County Sheriff's Department would either since anything surrounding this investigation happened in unicorporated Santa Clara. The phone was allegedly left in Redwood City, which is actually in San Mateo County.
