Thieves stole more than 300 iPhone X from San Francisco Apple Store


Thieves stole more than 300 iPhone X units from a UPS truck delivering them to an Apple Store in San Francisco.

Three men wearing hoodies drove a white Dodge and broke inside a UPS truck parked outside the Stonestown San Francisco Apple Store around 11:30am on Thursday, stealing a total of 313 iPhone X worth more than $370,000. The men escaped and have not yet been caught, but the SFPD is on the case.

What's interesting is that all the iPhones were diligently cataloged, each with a description and a serial number, all resulting in one fat file for Sgt. Paul Weggenmann.

The theft itself happened after the UPS driver had locked the cargo area after parking outside the Stonestown Galleria mall in southwest San Francisco. A janitor was able to snap a photo as the suspects unloaded boxes from the truck into the Dodge van.

"It's suspicious they were able to get that large a haul on that day," he said.

Luckily for people looking to buy an iPhone X at the Stonestown Apple Store, additional units will be provided, so the big launch will happen as planned.

Damn those low-life loser thieves. I hope they get busted real quick.

And no, they didn't get Robin Hooded, because Robin Hood steals from the rich to give to the poor. I doubt these guys will share what they stole with the poor.

I've been saying forever that someone should rob a delivery truck like UPS or FedEx, this is not like my plain because it's way more risky but it's all the same. I'd never actually do it of course so I hope these guys get caught.

That's nice, they can sell those in black market slightly lower and full their pockets.

Well as long as she's done nothing wrong, that's ok. But in Apple's cause, the company and the way the fool idiots and a POS company and their dodgy practises they believe in. They surely deserve too.

Sometimes I genuinely feel sorry for people like you. Do you honestly believe that if Samsung or whatever crappy OEM you worship... I mean follow could get away with these prices they wouldn't try? Are you on drugs? Samsung literally gave a certain segment of their employer base Cancer from lack of proper chemical waste management... are they not "dodgy"? LG has seen several labor violations in the last12 years, that ain't sleazy? GTFO...

https://www.phonearena.com/news/Oops-there-already-was-an-Animoji-app-out-there-developers-take-Apple-to-court_id99115/comments/page/2 Kiko's post - "I've grown accustomed to the majority of individuals on this site not reading anything but the title and rapidly heading straight for the comments section... " Nothing about apple shouldn't be stealing stuff from the hard working folks who already own this. Just like when Apple stole Wireless Sync to iTunes from a frikkin kid. No sob story by Kiko for the kid who got ripped off by Apple. The kid even tried to sell the app to Apple who refued. So the kid made it available for sale on Cydia. Apple stole it right down to the frikkin icon.https://www.cultofmac.com/99951/cydia-dev-apple-stole-both-my-idea-and-my-icon-for-wifi-sync/ Googling "Apple Steals" lands 15M hits. Sure mnay are just the same story being repeated by multiple outlets. But a company that had a tagline that they are "shameless about stealing" and this prick is going off on people because someone said, they didn't have a problem with it?! I don't either. When I see news articles where someone drives a car through Apple's window and steals millions of dollars in hardware...YES I don't feel sorry for Apple as I wouldn't for any company like them. Even if it was Samsung.

Because that isn't specific to Android. Samsung has factories that make all types of products. None of those products in the article are specific to Android though. So your claim is BS! The article specifically says one issue was at a factory that makes LCD's and components. Those items go in a multitude of products, not even related to Android. So your claim that this is an Android related issue is BS. Again you always trying to distract from Apple. It sucks to be you dude. You must have the most terrible life ever!

And Apple works with companies that also violate labr laws. So I fail to see your point. Asian countries don't have the same standards as the US. So you don't get to use our laws on them. Many chemicals have restricted usage in the US so to their dangerous levels of poisons. But those same materials are allowed to be used in their own countries in many cases. https://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2013/07/10/banned-foods.aspx These foods are banned in many countries as they are considered unsafe do to the chemicals used for preservatives in foods, but yet are allowed by the FDA. Please dude, stop harassing people!.

This is a new low for even you who is already oh so low. Things can be replaced! The things were on a truck, not on a person. Oh and you chose the sister reference. But this is far worse than your claim that I;m a racist because I said, if a person can't identify Asian from difference countries, how do you program software to do it?! Must be nice to be you. I would never be you for any amount of money. The phones are insured, they can be replaced.

What you seem to miss is this. I'm sure they are not happy someone stole anything from Apple. However, because Apple overcharges for their products, which many feel is a crime against humanity in general, whether you wnat or will buy them or not; is why they don't care it happened to Apple. The fact is, whether they get stolen, are defective, or whatever; Apple is gonna pass all the costs to you even if they have TRILLIONS of dollars. After all they knowing sold you an iPhone 4, knowing it was defective and then tried to sell the fix as an accessory. They knew the iPhone 6's would easily bend, because their own machines bent them at only 75lbs. Apple doesn't care about you, so why should anyone care if something bad happens to them? Maybe if they didn't do shady things like first and foremost stealing ideas from others and making the money the original owner should have made, like how they stole the iPhone name, iPad name, Apple name, Wifi Sync, and this latest Amoji thing and how they ripped off the Siri UI from other company, sign contracts and then don't want to pay them later and sue companies for things that aren't even patentable is why they dpnt care if something happens to them. EYE FOR AN EYE. I'm not happy they got stolen, because it causes an issue for the innocent people who ordered and now may have to wait longer. But I also don't feel sorry for them either because of the bad stuff they do. If you do bad things to people, then don't expect to have someone feel sorry when it happens to you. But you gonna attack people for that? Attack me and see how I go off on you. These guys are about to make some cool cash and they may never get caught. To bad for Apple. AWWWWW!!!

Stealing is a bad thing regardless of who/what the victim is.

Yep it is. Apple is stealing technology from Qualcomm and doesn't want to pay for it, even though they signed a contract to pay. Apple stole the Amoji application which they knew someone owned. Apple stole technology they use in their CPU from a University Every product and product name Apple has, has stolen technology in it. Did these same hypocrites feel sorry for the company's Apple stole from? No. I actually seen one guy post on one of the stories, well they should have protected them idea with a patent. Well if it was that easy to patent then everyone would get one Apple has it easier because they have more money. So screw the little guy because we love Apple. So Apple is gettign a taste of its own medicine, and KIKO-Snob has an issue with it now? But not when apple steals?

So basically when one gets activated the person will get a call starting they are using stolen property. Be careful of eBay purchases.

And they will get sold online for twice that value to unsuspecting customers who don't know they are stolen.

Verizon store I worked at was broken into and every iPhone, iPad, and Samsung was stolen. They even took our display phones and the idiots didn't power them off, they got GPS tracked and caught. Interestingly enough the crooks were from out if state and came to our city specifically to rob stores, they got 3 of them in town and a couple in smaller towns along 94 while heading home.
