Three arrested for stealing €7 million in Apple products from Schiphol

Three suspects were arrested in connection with the theft of 7 million euros worth of Apple products from an industrial terrain on Schiphol airport in December, the Koninklijke Marechaussee announced on Tuesday.

In December the suspects drove onto a Schiphol business area with a truck. They loaded the truck with 46 pallets of Apple phones and tablets before taking off. The stolen products were worth about 7 million euros.

Shortly after the theft, some of the stolen goods were listed for sale on line. Some were also found in a warehouse in Delft.

The suspects were arrested last week Wednesday. They are a 28-year-old man from Hoofddorp, a 27-year-old man from Amsterdam and a 27-year-old man from Soest. The Hoofddorp man was released after questioning. 

More arrests may follow.

The Koninklijke Marechaussee is a policing force that works as part of the Dutch military and is responsible for airport security in the Netherlands.
