Breaking into the same JFK Airport cargo building featured in the movie GoodFellas, two thieves stole two pallets of iPad Minis — about $US1.5 million worth — in a slick robbery that included using the airport’s own forklifts and possibly an inside man.
The New York Post reported that the two thieves broke into the cargo building on Monday night and loaded up two pallets worth of iPads into their white tractor trailer. They left three more pallets of iPads in the building because an airport worker interrupted them and asked what they were doing. The Post writes:
The crooks arrived at Building 261 around 11 pm in a white tractor trailer marked with the name CEVA on the side, 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.
In all, about 3600 iPad Minis were taken. Can’t wait to see them pop up on eBay! [NY Post]
