115 iPads bound for McLean company stolen: police

There’s no app for this one.


(The Associated Press)
A thief made off with 115 brand new iPads worth about $75,000 by intercepting a shipment from Apple to a McLean company, according to a search warrant filed in Fairfax County court.

Advanced Computer Concepts ordered the devices last June, but the shipment was either stolen or received and signed for by an imposter, according to the search warrant.

Police later discovered that all 115 stolen iPads had been registered and activated and were being used over a large geographic area, according to the search warrant.

The theft is just coming to light because Fairfax County police filed a search warrant this month to obtain registration information from Apple for the stolen iPads.

The Washington Post is awaiting a return call from police to see if any arrests have been made in the case.
