Over €5.5 million worth of Apple products stolen off truck in UK robbery

Over EUR5.5 million worth of Apple products were stolen off the back of a truck in the UK last week.

UK police have launched an investigation after the robbery took place on the M1. The driver of the truck and security guard on board were discovered "tied up" following the incident, on November 10. Among the 48 pallets of Apple stock stolen were iPhone 11's, AirPods, and Apple Watches.

Northamptonshire Police said that after the driver and security guard had been "tied up", the truck was then driven to a location where the trailer was transferred to "another awaiting truck".

Officers said the offenders "drove off, leaving the lorry driver and security guard behind". The truck was later found in Lutterworth, Leicestershire, where it is thought the 48 pallets of Apple products were transferred onto another vehicle. Police are now looking to speak to anyone who has been offered Apple products in strange circumstances and anyone who may have seen vehicles near the scene that seemed out of place.

Investigations are ongoing.
