Thieves Steal $1.5 Million in iPad Minis From JFK Airport

A pair of brazen thieves have stolen $1.5 million worth of iPad minis from a JFK cargo building, the same building that was the site of the 1978 Lufthansa heist featured in “GoodFellas”, reports The Post.

The crooks struck shortly before midnight on Monday and used one of the airport’s own forklifts to load two pallets of the tablet computers into a truck, according to law-enforcement sources.

They might have gotten more, but the thieves drove off leaving three more pallets of the Apple tablets behind after they were challenged by an airport worker returning from dinner.

The thieves are still at large and investigators have reportedly been giving airport workers polygraph tests as it's believed to be an inside job.

They arrived at Building 261 around 11pm in a white tractor trailer with the letters CEVA on the side. Sources think someone let them into the area and then let them out after they loaded about 3,600 iPad minis into the vehicle.

The iPad minis were being shipped by Cargo Airport Services and had just arrived from China.

With today's technology you would think Apple would be smart enough to install satellite tracking on their smart devices so its trackable even when the device is off so it would be less prone to being stolen, but...... They would rather have you buy a new one because to them it's simply all about money.

you really don't know what you are talking about there are so many hot Apple devices on the streets, my first 2 iPhones I bought for less then $50 and had no problems what so ever, now I got legit new iPhone and iPad because they give them free in my country with an upgrade once a year so you stay with the provider because the government came out with a no contract law so the cell providers here give you all kind of bounces just so you stay.
