Snippet: $1.5 Million Worth of iPad minis Stolen at JFK ☇

Shared on November 15, 2012

When I first saw the headline popping up on some other sites, I immediately thought of Goodfellas. Turns out Philip Messing and Josh Margolin from The New York Post did, too:

A pair of brazen crooks punched another hole in the lax JFK security when they stole a trove of new Apple iPad minis — worth $1.5 million — from the same cargo building that was the site of the 1978 Lufthansa heist featured in “GoodFellas,” The Post has learned.

The crooks struck shortly before midnight on Monday and used one of the airport’s own forklifts to load two pallets of the tablet computers into a truck, according to law-enforcement sources.

Whoever did this just needs to make sure they don’t start spending money too quickly.
