Valley Stream’s $93,000 iPhone Heist

In today’s random news, a shipment of Apple iPhones valued at $93,000 was stolen from a warehouse in Valley Stream, The Associated Press is reporting.

Nassau County Police say the iPhones were “taken from Rojay World Freight,” according to the report. “They were stored in a warehouse in Valley Stream before being shipped via Cathay Pacific Airways from JFK Airport to Hong Kong. However, Cathay Pacific realized the package had been tampered with and discovered it was full of reams of paper rather than the iPhones. Cathay Pacific notified Hong Kong Police who called the Port Authority of New York-New Jersey. They in turn notified Nassau County Police.”

Detectives arrested four people for the thefts, and charged them with various counts of grand larceny, conspiracy, and possession of stolen property.
