A group of daring thieves made off with roughly €70,000 (approx. $95,221 USD) in iPhones and iPads lifted from a moving truck on the German Autobahn this week. Even crazier, the truck’s driver didn’t even realize he’d been robbed until he stopped several hours later to use the bathroom.
Authorities believe the thieves pulled up behind the truck and climbed onto the hood of their own moving vehicle before breaking into the back of the truck. In total, they made off with 125 iPads, four iPad minis, around 30 iPhones and two Apple keyboards. The crime took place on Germany’s notoriously fast Autobahn while en-route from the Netherlands to the Czech Republic.
This isn’t the first time in recent memory that Apple has been targeted by thieves in Germany. Last month a group of daring criminals drove a car straight through a Berlin Apple Store’s display window before making off with a haul of Mac computers, iPads and iPhones. We wouldn’t go so far as to call it a crime spree, but these Apple thieves seem to be growing more brazen every month.
