Over 300 iPhone X Devices Worth $370,000 Stolen From A UPS Truck



 Over 313 units of the new iPhone X were stolen when thieves broke into a UPS delivery truck parked outside an Apple Store in San Francisco and hijacked the devices.

 With a price tag of $1000 plus for the iPhone X, the stolen Apple devices are worth over $370,000 in value.

Local news reports that the incident occurred between 11:15a.m and 11:30a.m Wednesday morning. The thieves grabbed the shipment which was meant to deliver at an Apple store at the Stonetown Mall in San Francisco.

 According to the report, the UPS truck driver had parked outside the Stonestown Mall, locked it and then went into a nearby Macy to make a delivery when the thieves broke in and swept the truck clean of the Apple devices.

 The police doesn't agree that the incident wasn't a "stumble upon" robbery. They believe that the thieves knew exactly what they were after. "Given the dollar value in the incident itself it appears it was well planned," said SFPD Captain Rick Yick.

The SFPD captain said that the thieves trailed the truck and struck when they had the opportunity. The police captain said that a witness who observed the incident said that "three unidentified suspects wearing hooded shirts"used a white Dodge van in the heist.

 UPS and Apple are working with the police in regards to the heist. However, the stolen iPhone can be tracked using their IMEI serial numbers if people report suspicious sales.

 SFPD spokeswoman Grace Gatapandan adviced buyers to stay away from third-party sellers and always purchase items from stores.
