Nearly seven million dollars of Apple products have been drastically stolen from a truck in the UK, Northamptonshire police said.
A truck driver and security guards were transporting a large number of Apple devices in cargo before they were searched by thieves. The accident happened around 20:00 on Tuesday, November 10, on a slippery road near the M1 highway, where the driver and security were directed and tied up.
In what appears to be a carefully planned robbery, the truck is taken to Creek in Northamptonshire, where the thieves transfer the trailer to a waiting truck and leave the original truck driver and security guard.
The truck was later found in Lutherworth, Leicestershire, where the thieves are believed to have transferred a total of 48 pallets of Apple products to a third vehicle and fled.
Police in Northamptonshire are appealing to witnesses and individuals who have been offered Apple products for sale in unusual circumstances or at suspiciously low prices.
