(Newser) – Looks like there could be some cheap iPad Minis on the market before Christmas. Thieves stole about 3,600 of them—with a retail value around $1.2 million—from a cargo building at JFK Airport, reports the New York Post. Cops suspect an inside job because the thieves pulled up to a less-secure side of the building in a truck and used an airport forklift to load two pallets. They had to leave three more behind, though, because an employee returned from break and scared them off.
