On Saturday, we told you about the truck driver that had to go to the bathroom, only to find out that his truck was stolen when he came out. That truck contained 22,500 LG G2 handsets. The thieves clearly knew a high end smartphone when they steal it.
The truck was stolen in Gary, Indiana on its way to a Sprint distribution facility in Louisville, Kentucky. The FBI was called in to try to find the truck and its cargo, which had a worth of over $12 million (or $4.5 million with a signed two-year contract). That is one valuable truck that the thieves hit.
Now we have news that the truck has been found with all of the LG G2 units intact. 40-year old Juan Perez Gonzalez was arrested and has already been bonded out of jail. Apparently Gonzalez stole the truck and then crashed it into a utility pole. Yet another story of a bumbling criminal, who didn’t get away with it. He was charged with leaving the scene of an accident, receipt of stolen property and theft by unlawful taking. It is believed that Gonzalez had accomplices. Several police agencies are still working the case, so maybe they will find them yet.
