Following up its report earlier in the week of the massive 1.5 million dollar iPad heist at New York’s JFK airport, the New York Postis now reporting that a JFK worker has been nabbed for involvement the crime. This is the heist that interestingly took place in the same cargo hold as the 1978 Lufthansa heist in the movie GoodFellas.
The man accused, Renel Rene Richardson, was said to have made “suspicious inquiries to co-workers about the gadget shipment and where forklifts might be found, according to court papers.”
Richardson, who works at the Cargo Air Services building where the heist occurred, acted as a lookout and had two accomplices who loaded the pallets of iPads onto a truck and drove away. It appears Richardson is cooperating with authorities as he helped them search for the iPads, although it is not known whether the devices have been recovered.
