Renel Rene Richardson, a worker at JFK airport, has reportedly been arrested by federal agents for the heist of $1.9 million worth of iPad minis, according to the NYP.

Court documents reveal that agents nabbed Richardson due to suspicious inquires he made to co-workers about the shipment and the location of forklifts.

Richardson allegedly acted as a lookout, according to court papers. The other, unidentified criminals loaded two pallets of the tablet computers onto a truck, and drove away after another worker confronted them, sources said.

After being arrested by the FBI, Richardson reportedly accompanied detectives on Wednesday night as they searched for the truck in Long Island.

It's unclear if any of the stolen iPads have been recovered.

Insider job from Apple itself to keep ipad mini on demand and high price. No suspects at this time? No video recorded? What else can you do when you are going to run out of business soon? Claim insurance!!!

Bitch Please, we have more cash flow then the united state government. Losing the 1.5-1.9$ million dollar shipment to keep it on demand? Are you serious? It's probably those damn Asians (Samung) stealing our shit again.

Hey asshat, if you have so much money, please use it to get some proper education MORON. No sense in bragging about all of your resources then failing on your spelling and capitalization. The US only has one state? What company is Samung? Jeez... I could hardly call someone named Renel Rene Richardson Asian. Report your common sense as stolen, although stolen implies you had it to begin with. Start with simple sentences, then maybe after several years, you can participate in adult talk.
