Police apprehend suspect in $1.9 million iPad mini theft at JFK

A couple of days ago some heisted almost two million dollars worth of iPad minis from JFK airport. Turns out, however, the culprit was more would-be-wiseguy than actually good goofella. Once again proving that no amount of law enforcement or manpower can equal suspects being less than clever, John Paczkowski of AllThingsD reports:

The suspect, Renel Rene Richardson, blew his cover by asking his co-workers for details about the iPad shipment and where to find a forklift a few days before the theft.

And yeah, no relation.

Yup. There's a Find my iPad app. With a remote-lock feature to essentially brick any stolen iPad the moment it goes online.

2 million dollars? Why did he need a forklift? That is only about 10 iPad minis. Apple is expensive you know. He could have carried them out. Kidding aside, he was really dumb, and you trust them with handling your guitars when you fly. Scary.
