Worker arrested for JFK iPad Mini heist Less than a week after two thieves drove out of JFK airport with two pallets of iPad Mini valued at above $1.5 million, a suspect has been charged.
Agents said they arrested Renel Rene Richardson after co-workers said he made "suspicious" inquiries about the shipment before it came in and where to find forklifts in the warehouse.

The tablets were stolen from the same cargo building that was featured in the hit movie "GoodFellas," better known as the Lufthansa heist.

At around midnight last Monday, the thieves used forklifts to load two massive pallets onto a truck before driving off. The original plan had been to take 5 pallets, but they had to leave three after being confronted by an airport worker who was returning from a late dinner.

Richardson has been accused of being the lookout and the man who let the thieves in and out that night.

The iPads have not been recovered as of yet.
