There are no details yet on how the thieves got in and out of the warehouse, but law enforcement is reporting that the thieves made off with 2 pallets of iPads Mini. That's 3,600 devices, with an estimated retail of $1,500,000.
These wealth redistributors were interrupted while loading the iPads in to their truck, and they left 3 pallets behind. “So, as a caper goes, it was probably unsuccessful,” a source said.
Today's news story is particularly amusing for anyone who has seen the movie Goodfellas; this robbery took place in the exact same warehouse as Lufthansa robbery referenced in the movie. A group of thieves stole $5 million in cash and nearly $900,000 worth of jewelry in that heist on Dec. 11, 1978., a feat which still stands as the single biggest heist in US history.
