While many are anxious in the lines of Apple stores around the world to get the iPhone X, three hooded and dignified bucks took the opportunity to steal the star of the day (or several units of it).
According to the CNET and the local media, the three men stole more than 300 iPhone X units directly from a UPS truck that was parked outside the Stonestown store in San Francisco, California.
The gangsters were driving a white Dodge van and broke into a UPS truck on Wednesday morning between 11:15 am and 11:30 am local time (4:15 pm – 4:30 pm Brasília time). In the truck, there were 313 iPhones X and the thieves managed to catch them all. The UPS driver claimed to have locked the truck after parking and a caretaker was the one who saw the criminals coming out with the phones and managed to take a picture.
The San Francisco police estimate that the value of the devices was around $ 370,000. Each device has already been cataloged with a description and serial number, but the suspects have not yet been captured.
At least no one was hurt – taking, of course, the feelings of consumers in line to buy one of the devices. One source said that customers who chose to schedule their purchase (Pickup) can pick up their smartphones at the store without any problems; however, it is not yet known how the situation will be with customers who enter the store without an appointment.
We were all already worried about stocks being small, now this one?!…
