He then fled with all 14 iPhone models each of which are priced at $1,500, roughly translates to around 10,000 yuan. Later the Apple store person who requested the delivery was unable to contact Tang.

The delivery guy was traced soon after and was recovered with 10 unopened iPhone 12 Pro Max units. According to the report by a Chinese website and first reported by GizmoChina, he already tampered with four iPhone 12 Pro Max models.

The report stated that Tang opened one iPhone box for personal use, second was used to pay off debts, third was mortgaged to a pawn shop at 9,500 yuan and lastly the fourth model unit was sold to a dealer at a lower price of 7,000 yuan.

He reportedly also bought a new dress and rented a BMW at a price of 600 yuan per day. All four iPhones were recovered by the police later.

This isn’t the first time that such an incident occurred with Apple products. Reports suggest that in a very recent incident five Amazon employees in Spain were arrested in an attempt to cart away iPhones worth over $500,000 from a logistic centre in Madrid. Later the suspects were uncovered by Amazon.
