According to reports, three men made off with over $370,000 were of iPhone X devices during a robbery of a UPS truck parked outside an Apple Store parked outside the Stonestown Galleria mall. The robbers reportedly made their getaway a white Dodge van with 313 iPhones valued at $999+ apiece.
Police have not yet arrested any suspects, but reports show that the theft happened sometime around 11:15 and 11:30 am on Friday morning (Oct 3). Customers who pre-ordered devices at the Apple store location were still promised their iPhones on time.
