Police are urging members of the public to be vigilant when using online auction sites to buy goods online.
The warning follows the theft of thousands of pounds worth of iPhone 4 handsets from Vodafone, that were later sold on eBay. The iPhones have been recovered from across the country.
Police are warning that anyone found to be in possession of a stolen iPhone could be liable for arrest and prosecution for possession of stolen goods.
