It's not a Vin Diesel movie: iPhones worth more than half a million stolen from a moving truck

Dutch police have arrested five men suspected in the theft of iPhones worth more than half a million US dollars, but it's not just the sheer amount of iPhones stolen: the men have allegedly pulled off a Fast and Furious stunt to make it happen. Driving a modified van near the truck loaded with the iPhones, one of the men broke into the truck while it was moving and started throwing boxes with iPhones into the van.
The five man, all with their origins in the Eastern European country of Romania, were arrested at a holiday park in central Netherlands on Saturday.
Reportedly, similar raids have happened in Europe before, but it's the first time that we have an actual arrest after such a robbery.

500 000 US$ in iPhones?!? If we suggest that one iPhone is 500 US$, then they stole 1000 units! The measurement of one box are 155mm x 60mm x ~90mm (l x h x w). One pallet is 1200mm x 800mm. That mean approximately 72 iPhone boxes on one level. With height of the box of 60mm, we can assume 20 levels on one pallet - final calculation - about 1440 iPhone on one pallet. Very quick and capable thieves.

So was each iPhone worth more than half a million or did you jack up the title & first sentence?
