Hey, How'd That iPhone Get In My Boot?
It might be tempting to simply chalk this one up to bad timing, but the dude tried to steal the hottest item in the world on the first day it was available! As reported by WDRB (Louisville, KY)
According to an arrest report, on Thursday afternoon, 21-year-old Raylon J. Brooks an employee of UPS, removed an iPhone -- worth $649 -- from a shipping pallet and hid it inside his boot, then tried to walk out of the building with it.
But it didn't quite work out as he planned.How could this ingenious plan have failed?
"UPS did a random audit today, and as employees were leaving, they made them take their shoes off," the arrest report states.Random my arse.
Police say that, when Brooks took his boots off, the iPhone fell out.
Brooks allegedly admitted to stealing the iPhone and gave a written statement. He was arrested and charged with theft.Given the available choices: (1) What? How'd that get in there? (2) No hablo Ingles. (3) I was just checking to make sure the facility is secure. (4) Okay, you got me... - It's hard to give the guy too much credit for fessin' up. Here's the source.
