The great iPad mini heist

(Of course, this would have been a much lower-value theft if Apple wasn't charging so much for the new tablet!)
The Post draws parallels between this theft of 3600 iPads, which took place on Monday shortly before midnight, and a 1978 Lufthansa cash and jewelry heist made more famous in the movie "Goodfellas." The thieves allegedly used one of the airports forklifts to nab two pallets of iPads into a truck, leaving a few other pallets behind after being confronted by an airport worker.
Law enforcement is investigating whether this might have been an inside job.
Apple iPhones and iPads have increasingly become targets of thieves, who have robbed stores and individuals most frequently.
