For the Love of Phones:Thieves In Indiana Steal More Than 20,000 LG G2 Smartphones.

share on:

It ain’t exactly Gone In 60 Seconds, but at least one thief is now sitting on a pile of electronics worth more than any of  Davido’s Cars :-p (Pun Intended)  CNET reports that a truck stolen from a Gary, Indiana truck stop contained 22,500 LG G2 smartphones, originally intended for a Sprint distribution center in Kentucky.  The combined value of all those phones is more than 190,320,000,000 billion Naira (Mouth Watering)nexusae0_g2_thumb1

At the moment there don’t appear to be any leads in the case, though police in Indiana and Illinois are looking for the truck and the thief, and the FBI is aware of the situation. The burglary might hamper the launch of Sprint’s LG G2 which was  planned for later this year. That being said, the real question is what the thief or thieves might do with that many phones. AndroidPolice have got a few ideas:

  • Build the world’s most expensive play fort
  • Recreate the Cowboys Stadium scoreboard
  • Use the screens to illuminate a dirty note visible from the ISS
  • Collect a five million dollar check from
  • Give a G2 to every man, woman, and child in Portland
  • Create a glowing, single-use driveway
  • Gut the screens and sell them as Barbie-sized HDTVs
  • Make a Bitcoin mining rig from 22,500 Snapdragon processors
  • Give them out as business cards
  • Create the most exhaustive drop test video on YouTube

I  hope those crooks enjoy the loot while they can.
