Looks like 300 of the iPhone X “campers” will have to wait a while longer for their devices.
Approximately 300 of the highly-sought-after devices were heisted from a UPS delivery in San Francisco. At the going rate, this score will bring the thieves somewhere in the neighborhood of $300,000.00.
The delivery was on its way to a mall in San Francisco called Stonestown Galleria according to a CBS San Francisco report. Police think the culprits had a plan in place to grab the shipment, before it made it to its destination.
How the whole thing went down shows that the thieves did their homework. While the UPS driver delivering to Macy’s, the thieves broke into the truck and made off with the devices.
San Francisco Police Department Captain Rick Yick said “A witness observed three unidentified suspects wearing hooded sweatshirts exit a white Dodge van,”
He continued “It appears the suspects knew what they were looking for.”
Police have asked for anyone with any information to provide that information to authorities, but as of now, the thieves have not been located.
As if it wasn’t difficult to get your hands on an iPhone X already, this situation makes it that much more difficult for the consumers of the Stonestown Galleria to get theirs.
Of course, there is always Cragslist…I hear someone has 300 of them for sale as we speak…
