Here's how a $1.5 million iPad mini heist goes down

So, how exactly does one get away with nabbing $1.5 million in iPad minis? Apparently it's relatively easy at New York City's John F. Kennedy Airport, where security is seemingly nil. According to a report from the New York Post on Thursday, the tablet thieves went so far as to use one of the airport's own forklifts to load their loot. 

But wait, it gets even better. The report also states that the iPad mini robbery, which took place after 11 p.m. on Monday, went down in the same cargo building that served as the site of the 1978 Lufthansa heist featured in “GoodFellas."

It is believed that there were at least two people involved, who both escaped after (finally) being confronted by a worker. Despite the confrontation, the crooks still managed to leave with two crates (or 3,600 units) of Apple's brand new tablet. 

Investigators believe this was an inside job, and have reportedly questioned JFK airport workers, complete with polygraph tests.
