Over $370,000 Worth of iPhone X Models Stolen From UPS Truck in San Francisco


Iphone X

Over 300 iPhone X models with an estimated worth of more than $370,000 have been stolen from a UPS truck parked outside a San Francisco Apple Store, CNET is reporting (via KTSF). According to the police report, three men in hoodies driving a white Dodge van, who haven’t yet been caught or identified, broke into the truck between 11:15 a.m. and 11:30 a.m. PT on Wednesday.

Each phone was cataloged with a description and serial number, which meant the police report was one of the “fattest” Sgt. Paul Weggenmann had ever seen, he said. People who planned to pick up their preordered iPhones at the Stonestown store will still get their devices on time, a person familiar with the matter said.

The police report says that the UPS driver had locked the cargo area after parking outside the Stonestown Galleria mall in the southwest Lakeside neighborhood of San Francisco.

The suspects were spotted by a janitor, who also snapped a photo while they were unloading boxes from the UPS truck and into a Dodge van. “It’s suspicious they were able to get that large a haul on that day,” he told the police.

UPS has now issued a statement that it is working with law enforcement investigating the theft.

    I guess whoever buying them will not know the phones are locked out because it’s still in wrapped and think it’s ok..

    I hope Apple is able to document all of the serial numbers and ensure the phones are either tracked or can’t be used.

    They don’t need to concern themselves with this, it’s their buyers who are likely too greedy and foolish to know.

    These phones will fail to activate unfortunately the seller will have the money before the customer finds out they’re stolen.

    They’re probably going to be sent overseas or something. Who knows/who cares. I guess the insurance company cares lol.

    I’d imagine they will become the source of parts like replacement screens, batteries, etc.. on eBay or whathaveyou…
