Burglars stole $1.5 million worth of iPad minis from a cargo building at JFK International Airport. The New York Post reported that that the incident probably happened a little before midnight on Monday, and that the crooks used an airports forklift to load two pallets of the tablets on a truck. Though the group could have grabbed more, they were scared off by an airport worker coming back from dinner.

Investigators suspect the act may have been an inside job and are questioning airport workers. The truck used to steal the Apple products was a white tractor trailer with the name CEVA on the side. They pulled up to the side of the building with looser security to steal the items. It’s believed that someone let them into the area and then let them back out after the heist. About 3,600 minis, meant to be shipped by Cargo Airport Services, were stolen. The iPads had just arrived from China and were supposed to be distributed to different Apple stores throughout the country.
