French Connection: entire iPhone 5 shipment snatched in a Marseille armed robbery heist
posted by Daniel P. / Sep 27, 2012, 9:05 AM
The semi-trailer was on its way back from Marignane airport where it loaded the goods from a cargo plane, ready for delivering to the French Apple fans. Three masked men pointed a shotgun at the driver, and let him drive behind the BMWs, which were headed by a van to take the loot.
The whole convoy stopped in the countryside, and the driver observed how the men loaded just the iPhone 5 boxes in the van, and then drove away, torching the truck behind them. That's what happens when you are watching too many Jean Reno movies.
Considering that the 16GB version goes for EUR 679 ($874) in France, a few hundred iPhones represent a good chunk of change there, and we'll leave the French police wondering how did the robbers know this truck is carrying them, and its route.
Can this be arranged by Apple from Conan's script to show how valuable iPhone 5 is LOL?

Is someone trying to bring back Steve Jobs by assembling the stolen iPhone fives into a time machine? Boy, they're in for a wild ride! They'll land on a different destination considering the failed maps and maybe they'll get interruped due to the faulty wifi facility and finally the time machine will crack into pieces because the light leaked.

I blame Google for this; how you ask?...below is why it's Google fault. The thief use Google's map to make a clean get away; cause if they use Apple's map they would still be going in circle or over a cliff...thus, Google's maps help them get away...hahahah

The best part of this article was "three masked men pointed a shotgun at the driver." I can just imagine 3 guys all trying to hold the same shotgun and fighting over who gets the trigger and where to aim it.
