$1.5 Million in iPads Stolen From JFK International Airport

JFK Airport

Talk about a heist. Two thieves managed to steal a boatload of iPad minis–$1.5 million worth of them. According to the New York Post, more ironic is the fact that it was taken from the same cargo building where the 1978 Lufthansa heist from GoodFellas happened.

Here’s a portion of the report explaining how it was done:

The crooks arrived at Building 261 around 11 p.m. in a white tractor trailer according to the sources. They pulled up to the side of the airport building that faces onto a street and has less security than the other side, which is accessible from the airport tarmac.

Sources believe someone let them into the area and then let them out after they grabbed the iPads.

That’s 3,600 iPad minis. It’s a bummer because those iPad minis were being shipped to locations throughout the country. It’s not clear whether those were going to retailers or to consumers who had already paid for their Apple tablets.

That sucks.
