Hours ahead of iPhone X availability in the United States, thieves made off with more than 300 iPhone X models that were snatched yesterday afternoon from the Stonestown Apple Store in San Francisco, California.
According to Police, three men in hoodies driving a white Dodge van broke into a UPS truck outside of the Stonestown location on Wednesday morning between 11:15 and 11:30 a.m. Pacific Time. The truck was filled with iPhone X devices that were being shipped to the store.
The iPhone X models stolen are worth an estimated $370,000, and the suspects have thus far not yet been caught.Customers who were planning on picking up pre-ordered devices at the Stonestown Apple Store will still get their orders. It is not clear, however, how this will impact walk-in sales at Stonestown.
Every iPhone stolen was catalogued and serial numbers have been provided to the police.
