Thieves Steal 3,600 iPad Minis Worth $1.5 Million

Over the years, we’ve seen a fair share of Apple Store break and enters, in which thieves have usually been able to manage stealing at least a dozen or two MacBook Pros, iPhones, iPads and other devices on display. But those situations don’t even come close to what went down at a Kennedy Airport warehouse in New York City on Monday night, where The New York Post reports that culprits were able to steal two whole pallets containing 3,600 iPad minis.

At retail value, those iPad minis are worth a whopping $1.5 million. Interestingly, it is believed that this might have been an inside job. According to the report, it is believed that someone from the airport let them into the warehouse area and proceeded to let them out after the heist was completed. It’s also possible that these iPad minis could be worth more than $1.5 million, since there is a chance that these are LTE models.
