The same day of the iPhone 5 launch, O2 employee Usman Sethi allegedly took 252 devices from the mobile provider’s Wimbledon store around 1:30 am. That's not all. Dude was also wanted for stealing cash from the company’s safe, as well as jewelry from his family’s house. No word yet on Sethi's capture, so until then, he's on the run eating with a large inventory of Apple's next-gen smartphones.
