Theft of Apple products by courier for $1.3 million

25. 03. 2024 | Natalie Bezděková

Some crimes just horrify one. One such example is the recent case of a former UPS courier employee in Canada. Between September 2023 and January 2024, he stole shipments containing Apple products worth more than $1.3 million, or approximately $30 million.

He then sold these products at discounted prices and deposited the money he received into his bank account. Not only that, but he also used the money to buy jewellery and other items. However, his criminal activities did not go unnoticed. UPS, which provides delivery of Apple products in Canada, was able to easily track down the culprit because it had direct access to the warehouses. The thief was caught on cameras placed in the warehouses where he was acting as a courier, and it was something to behold. For example, in January alone, he managed to steal more than 120 iPhones in one day. With this rate of theft, it was only a matter of time before he was discovered. Now the accused courier is in custody awaiting trial. Prosecutors are being uncompromising, demanding not only imprisonment but also the seizure of the offender’s property, including his house, all cash, money in his bank accounts and even his vehicles. This story shows that theft in Apple warehouses has its risks and consequences.
