£5 million worth of Apple products stolen from truck in UK
Police in the UK are appealing for witnesses after £5 million worth of Apple products were stolen from a truck in Northamptonshire.
Thieves are understood to have targeted the loaded truck as it was leaving the M1 motorway, between 7.45pm and 8pm on Tuesday, November 10, in an heist which saw 48 pallets of products stolen and transferred into a waiting getaway vehicle.
The lorry driver and security guard were said to have been tied up and bundled into the back of the vehicle, before it was abandoned. Northamptonshire Police say:
The lorry was driven to Eldon Close in Crick, where the offenders transferred the trailer on to an awaiting truck, and drove off leaving the lorry driver and security guard behind. The truck was later found across the county boarder in Lutterworth, Warwickshire, where it is believed the offenders transferred the 48 pallets of Apple products into a third vehicle.
A police spokesman said the stolen consignment included iPhone 11s, AirPods, Apple Watches, a variety of iPads and charging devices.
Anyone with information or who may have witnessed this incident is asked to call Northamptonshire Police quoting reference number 20000595599.
