iphone 6

A worker at one of Foxconn's factories in China was reportedly detained and accused by local law enforcement of stealing six shells for Apple's upcoming iPhone 6 and selling them to a buyer for $160 each.

The report claims that police detained the man, who is only identified as "Qiao" and who works at a Foxconn plant in the city of Jincheng. The story claims the man started stealing the iPhone 6 shells sometime in mid-summer and sent them to a gadget market in Shenzhen. Foxconn noticed the shells were missing in August. The company's security team worked with local police to investigate the missing shells before going after "Qiao" as their main suspect. There's no word on if he was actually charged.
