ORLANDO, Fla. -- A plot to rob a shipment of Apple's newest iPad from a central Florida store was foiled by an Orange County Sheriff's deputy.

The sheriff's office says 24-year-old Jasmin Roman and 26-year-old Juan Carlos Ortiz Valez bought guns, handcuffs, black clothes and other items to rob the Best Buy store near Orlando's Florida Mall early Thursday.

Roman, a Best Buy employee, was arrested on charges of conspiracy to commit robbery and conspiracy to commit kidnapping with a gun. Valez, a former store employee, was arrested on a count of conspiracy to commit kidnapping with a gun.
