Richardson was a lookout during the Apple iPad mini robbery while his two man gang used a forklift to load two pallets of Apple's 7.9 inch tablet onto a truck. After being questioned by an co-worker not involved in the incident, the two drove away with the stolen merchandise.
finger of suspicion being pointed directly at you.
Port Authority detectives found out about Richardson's inquiries and quickly tracked him down. The FBI arrested him and he led detectives on a search for the truck throughout Long Island. At this point, it is not known if the truck containing the Apple iPad mini tablets has been found and the FBI will not comment. The value of the stolen tablets has been placed at $1.9 million.

If you are going to steal that many iPad mini's and be that obvious about it, you deserve to be caught.

I just don't understand the obsession people have over Apple products. Relatively speaking, this was a teeny-tiny heist and not worthy of an FBI investigation; there are far more important crimes in the U.S. than the theft of mini replicas of a tablet with limited use. Besides, chances were, these "minis" would have wound up on the black market anyway.or Craigslist. Personally, I think the thieves did this country (and, the World for that matter) a great patriotic service and they should not be penalized for it.
