JFK Worker Arrested for Involvement in the iPad Mini Heist

Last week, 3,600 units of Apple's newest gadget, the iPad Mini, were stolen from JFK airport costing the technology giant $1.5 million dollars. Federal agents have worked diligently to arrest an airport worker who was allegedly involved with the heist.

After questioning, workers of JFK lead federal agents to the arrest of airport worker, Renel Rene Richardson. Due to the nature of the crime, authorities believed the heist was an inside job, roads lead to Richardson because of his suspicious inquires about the shipment of Apple's tablet. Richardson didn't work alone, the robbery was orchestrated with the help of two other criminals with Richardson only acting as the lookout. The names of the other alleged suspects have not been released.

One out of three suspects currently in custody, but the 3,600 iPad Minis have not yet been retrieved
