Police in central England are asking for help in catching thieves who made about $ 6.6 million in Apple gadgets last Tuesday night.
Between 7:45 p.m. and 8 p.m. local time on November 10, thieves hijacked a truck carrying about 48 pallets of Apple products, including iPad, AirPods and Apple Watches, police said.
The robbery took place right next to the M1 motorway in Northamptonshire, according to local police. It is alleged that the robbers tied up the driver of the truck, as well as a security guard, and drove the truck to an industrial park in the village of Crick, where they hitched the trailer to a waiting truck. Police believe the thieves later transferred the stolen goods to an unidentified “third vehicle”.
According to Reuters, no weapons were used in the crime, and the driver and security guard suffered only minor injuries.
Nearly $ 7 million in stolen Apple products is among the largest reported thefts. Easily obscures the tide of 2018 robberies in Apple stores in the Gulf area, which led to the theft of about $ 1 million Mac, iPhone and others. Later there were seventeen people charged in a series of thefts.
Northamptonshire police are asking anyone with any information or evidence that can help them investigate the case to come out.
“Officers would like to speak to anyone who may have seen a number of vehicles on the sliding road at junction 18 between the hours indicated, who may have looked out of place or who may have video footage from the area,” said in a press release. “They would also like to talk to anyone who may have offered any Apple products in unusual circumstances or who knows of anyone who sells such items at low prices.”
Locals who believe they have useful information can call 101 and quote reference number 20000595599. Anyone wishing to escape anonymously can call Crimestoppers on 0800-555111, which we are sure that people who have just bought a new Apple Watch for $ 300 I will definitely do.
