Two thieves skirted security at JFK International Airport and got away with part of a cargo shipment of Apple’s iPad minis worth $1.5 million, according to a report from the New York Post.
The crooks pulled off the heist late Monday night, just before midnight, and used one of the airport’s forklifts to lift the heavy shipment of iPad minis, which were being stored in a cargo building, into their get-away truck, according to the report.
While the thieves have not been caught, it’s suspected that the heist was an inside job. Investigators have been questioning airport workers, sources told the Post.
The stolen iPad minis had just arrived from China and were on their way to being shipped across the US, Cargo Airport Service told the Post. Apple and Cargo Airport Services did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
