Truck Carrying 22,500 LG G2 Smartphones Stolen

/ 4 years ago


The brand new, soon to be released G2 is set to be the new flagship handset for LG, but 22,500 have just gone missing in a robbery that saw a truck load of them stolen in Louisville, Kentucky.

According a recent report on CNET the handsets were being distributed to Sprint stores in time for the handsets launch some time next month, although it is expected this latest turn of events may delay the launch a little.

The driver left his truck for a bathroom break and upon returning noticed that his truck was gone, and the $14 million worth of smartphones that were in the back had gone with it.

Chances are the phones are a long way from Kentucky by now, just be cautious of anyone trying to sell the handsets.

Thank you CNET for providing us with this information.
