Californian Walmarts have got a problem on their hands, with a trio of thieves stealing iPads in a very simple ruse involving one man telling an assistant he wants to buy two iPads, which are then set aside for him under a counter.

As the story goes, he then pretends to browse other products, while a female accomplice then steals them from under the counter. She then passes them to a third member of their ring, who puts them in her handbag and walks out with them.

Confined to the Arcadia area of California, the group has apparently stolen $US6400 worth of iPads so far from Walmarts. [Daily World via CultofMac]
