A year-long manhunt ended last weekend, when police arrested a gang of five Romanian stunt thieves near a large collection of Van Gogh paintings in the Netherlands. In their hideout, the cops found €500,000 ($739,817) worth of iPhones that the suspects allegedly lifted off the back of a truck -- while it was barrelling down a highway.
