A MAN has been arrested in New York, suspected of being the lookout man for the Ipad Mini thieves that hit JFK airport
We heard about the heist last week, and there was the suggestion that an inside man had done more than turn a blind eye.
The wheeze is that the hapless criminals were caught on the hop by pesky personnel and had to be on their toes in mid-pilfer. The thieves apparently left quite a few Ipads behind after the disturbance.
The arrested man is Renel Rene Richardson. According to a report at the New York Post he was the mastermind behind the theft and was its lookout. We say 'mastermind', but...
Richardson allegedly raised suspicions by asking his coworkers a lot of questions about the Apple shipment and where he could find a forklift truck. He might also have asked them to embroider the word "Swag" onto a black sack, we don't know.
It is unknown if any, or how many, Ipad Mini tablets have been recovered, but a report at CNN suggests that the area is awash with cheap Ipad Mini tablets.
"Need to sell tonight. Make offer. Do not lowball me," read one tempting offer. µ
