Thieves Grab 3,600 iPad Minis Worth $1.5M In JFK Airport Heist

TechCrunch - Apple’s iPad mini seems to be a success, and that has attracted the criminal element’s attention. According to the New York Post, a shipment of Apple’s iPad mini, numbering 3,600 devices and with a total value of $1.5 million, was taken from JFK airport from the same location that a group stole $5 million in cash and $900,000 in jewelry in 1978. (Gadgets, ipad mini)

Sounds like somebody was pretty well organized or security still sucks there. 1 or the other.
JKelloggs  +   1177d ago
Or both

This. But how the f*** can someone get through airport security and manage to do this? Nice going, JFK airport security.

Security had to have tipped them off and turned their back for a nice little payday. Down the road they will be killed to make sure he/she doesnt talk.
Has nobody seen Goodfellas?

Someone got lucky! Their luck ought to run out... eventually.
Just follow the black market, after all what are they going to do with all those pads by themselves.

You sell them in bulk to people who sell them, like big time drug pushers sell a kilo or more to a drug dealer. With bunches all spread out around the world it's impossible to keep track or even tell when something is fishy.

well fortunately for the theives the Ipad mini's are 23% thinner and 53% lighter so they should fit nicely in their van LOL, ironic isn't it that the only people benefiting from smaller thinner devices are the people stealing it. all things aside apple robberies have been quite frequent as of late i wonder how it will end if it does.

Well atleast Apple are the ones out of pocket (Y)

I don't believe so, I believe Walmart, Best Buy or any retail store that sells a Ipod,I pad etc have to pay for the items in advance?
Grap  +   1177d ago
i don't think so.

Doubt it. That stuff is normally done on credit, and not up front. And I'm sure there is some sort of liability on Apple's end to see to the delivery.
ThePundit  +   1177d ago
These deliveries are insured aren't they?
