5 Amazon employees arrested for stealing A$815k of iPhones

Spanish police have arrested five employees at an Amazon distribution centre in Madrid, for allegedly stealing €500,ooo worth of iPhones.

Initiated by an internal investigation, Amazon began looking into the centre when packages being sent from it has disparaging weights to what was expected based on the order being shipped.

The company installed a series of cameras to monitor workers, which led them identify a group of workers they believe to be stealing iPhones, not by putting them down their dacks, but instead shipping them in orders they weren’t supposed to be in to unknown associates.

Four workers were arrested by authorities, with a fifth turning themselves into police.
