A Country Club Hills man was arrested Thursday, Dec. 13, after an ongoing investigation of two cellphone ruses in the New Lenox Walmart’s parking lot, according to a press release from the New Lenox Police Department.

Michael Humphrey, 23, of 18053 Idlewild Drive in Country Club Hills, was charged with felony theft by deception. He was a suspect in two previous incidents in late November and December, when he pretended to sell a phone through a mobile app and stole money from the buyer during the exchange at Walmart, police said.
