Best Buy robbers make off with $14,000 worth of phones in broad daylight
by Daniel Petrov / May 08, 2019, 9:26 AM
According to the NYPD, the incident happened around 2pm at the Northern Blvd. store, and its Crime Stoppers division that gives up to $2500 for information leading to a suspect's apprehension, even released the surveillance camera video showing two partners in crime making off with the loot in a sports bag.
The NYPD stated the obvious by saying that one of the suspects is male, between 25 and 35 years old, wearing a white T-shirt and what seems to be black jeans. His accomplice looks to be a female in the same age bracket, with long blond tresses, green hat, and a dark jacket.
Well, at least the handsets weren't all flagships, as every self-respecting tech fan knows that a true high-end phone should command at least $999 these days.

You would think this was the heist of the century. The people who stole these phones are scumbags, and I hope they get nailed to the wall (I believe this is felony theft, due to the amount) but 17 phones can easily be hidden in a purse/pockets if you take the phones out of the packaging.

I mean Best buy is a multi national Billion dollar company that takes advantage of the elderly and ignorant people with their ridiculous 100$+ "windows set up", "computer repair" their absurd prices on Chinese made junk cables and their overall high prices on consumer products. If there's someone stealing and being a scumbag it's the Best Buy corporation. Not to mention some managers and bosses encourage their employees to lie about products so people buy them. They try to force garbage warranties on products and more. The company treats it's employees like crap and don't even fully pay their employees the promised sum when they win contests... You're on the wrong path if you think the people stealing these phones are worse than the corporation called Best buy.

Don't the phones end up getting blacklisted and become worthless?

Question is how did they manage to get into the case without anyone noticing?

"The NYPD stated the obvious by saying that one of the suspects is male, between 25 and 35 years old, wearing a white T-shirt and what seems to be black jeans." Without even seeing the video, i know that you forgot one "obvious" detail in this description. Dont be afraid to say it. We all know what it is...
