You may have heard the hard-hitting news duo from the Morning Stream report on this earlier today, but let me get you up to speed. Two thieves went “through” security at JFK airport last Monday night and reportedly used the airport’s forklifts to steal roughly 3600 iPad Mini’s. That part you know. But it get’s better. People originally lauded these guys as something out of a mastermind crime thriller, but things have changed. Renel Rene Richardson has been arrested on suspicion of being the lookout for the other two thieves that made off with the iPads.
And why, pray tell, was this mastermind arrested? Because Richardson allegedly made personal inquiries to co-workers about the shipment and where he could find forklifts. Additionally, they are trying to use Craiglist as a “fence” to sell them. As of Sunday, there were dozens of listed iPad Minis near Long Island that read something to the effect of “Need to sell tonight.” And my personal favorite, “Do not low ball me.” Personal note, don’t ask my co-workers about when and where I can steal company products. And also, the Feds always check the employees.
