Stolen truck containing shipment of LG G2 units found

Stolen truck containing shipment of LG G2 units found
You might remember that on Saturday, we told you the story about the truck driver that had to answer when nature called only to come out of the bathroom to find out that his truck was stolen. And no, this truck didn't contain a bunch of melons for the market, or something with little value like the latest Katy Perry album. This truck had a payload consisting of 22,500 LG G2 handsets. At least the thieves went for a top-shelf model that is well spec'd.

The truck was stolen in Gary, Indiana enroute to a Sprint distribution facility in Louisville, Kentucky. The FBI was called in to find the truck and its cargo, worth over $12 million (only $4.5 million with a signed two-year contract!)

We are thrilled to report that the truck has been found with all of those LG G2 units intact. 40-year old Juan Perez Gonzalez was arrested, but has already bonded out of jail. Gonzalez allegedly stole the truck and then crashed it into a utility pole. He was charged with leaving the scene of an accident, receipt of stolen property and theft by unlawful taking. Law-enforcement officials believe that Gonzalez had accomplices. A number of police agencies are still working the case.



Thanks, Anonymous Tipster!

...But he must be stupid even though he may not accept it to have done that. What on earth made him think he can achieve his aims, Smartphones are dictectives themselves.

Smartphones are not BAGS OF MELONS, the company at least has a way to trace them through some means.

May be he has read all our comments about uselessness of stealing CDMA phones and so he lost all his hope and met with an accident...

You guys do understand that you can unlock most Sprint high-end phones and use them anywhere, right? LG added GSM/EDGE/HSPA support to the Sprint G2 and the iPhone and Galaxy devices for Sprint will also work in other countries. Sprint is currently suing handset traffickers that steal Sprint phones and ship them overseas where they can get over $1000 per phone.

I don't understand the motives of these criminals, they're so stupid. Mental facility must be his next home destination. Ps. no wonder it's been taking forever for Sprint to get the LG G2 loll

Stealing "Tracking devcies" isn't iNtelligent idea. Smartphones are tracking devcies just like ankle bracelet trackers only with a difference -- you pay a lot to get them :)
