    [h=1]Thieves grab 3,600 Apple iPad minis from JFK Airport[/h]By Philip Elmer-DeWitt November 15, 2012: 10:34 AM ET
    [h=2]Beats waiting in line at the Apple Store, says the New York Post[/h][​IMG]The thieves reportedly left in a white CEVA tractor trailer

    FORTUNE -- A gang of thieves Monday night made off with 3,600 Pad minis that had just arrived at JFK Airport from China.
    According to Thursday's New York Post, the gang struck shortly before midnight, using one of the airport's own forklifts to load two pallets containing 1,800 tablets each onto a white tractor trailer bearing a CEVA logo. They might have made off with three more pallets had they not be interrupted by an airport worker.
    The Post put the value of the haul at $1.5 million -- $417 per mini -- although fences don't usually pay full price for stolen Apple (AAPL) products.
    Investigators suspect an inside job. Operating on the theory that someone with security clearance let the thieves in and out, they have already subjected three airport workers to polygraph tests.
    The Post notes that Cargo Building 261, where the iPads were stored, was the site 24 years earlier of the $5 million "Lufthansa" heist recreated in Martin Scorcese's Goodfellas.
    As of this writing, the thieves were still at large.

    I've been told to retrieve the Apple Ipads from JFK Airport in Queens.
    I need to complete this job without killing any of the location's residents or getting caught and spending time in jail.

    I was entertained by the pop culture references in this thread.
