$1.5 Million Of iPad Minis Stolen From JFK Airport

20121115-211415.jpgAfter breaking into the same JFK cargo building featured in the movie GoodFellas, two thieves stole two pallets of iPad Minis, about $1.5 million worth, in a slick burglary that involved the airport’s own forklift and probably an inside man.

The New York Post reported that the two thieves broke into the building on Monday night and loaded two pallets of iPad Minis into their white tractor trailer. Three more pallets of iPads were left behind because an airport employee interrupted them and asked what they were doing. The New York Post writes:

The crooks arrived at Building 261 around 11 p.m. 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.

A total of about 3,600 iPad Minis were stolen.
