$3 Million Worth Of iPhones Stolen In Belgium!!

In case anyone needs further evidence of just how hot Apple’s iPhone is around the world, Belgian newspaper De Standaard reports today on the theft of nearly 4,000 iPhones from CEVA Logistics, a distribution company with a warehouse in Willebroek.

Valued at approximately 2 million Euro ($3 million U.S.), the iPhones were en route to Belgium’s only official provider, Mobistar, who notes that the devices have already been blocked from their network and are urging potential customers to beware of buying iPhones through unauthorized sources.

“We have the serial numbers of the stolen iPhones block[ed] anyway so they cannot be used,” says a Mobistar spokesperson. “[For] people who want to buy an iPhone, [it] is best done in an approved outlet and not on the street or on the black market.”

The thieves used a fire ladder to access the roof of the large warehouse, cutting a hole directly over the area where the iPhones were stored shortly after they had been delivered. The report suggests that the theft may be an inside job based on these specific details. Local police have launched an investigation, but with little else to go on right now, it could be some time before the case is closed.
