In the absence of a better plan to steal the iPhone 14 Plus that this Chinese woman had gotten into between her eyebrows, the only idea that came to her head was bite the security cable to take it away. A seemingly seamless plan, at least if you have a shark’s teeth. Unfortunately, the story has not ended well for her.
The woman in question, known by the surname Qui, as she is spoken of in the country’s press, went to an Apple store with the intention of buying an iPhone 14 Plus. His original plan was to pay it off, because he had lost his and needed to have one again. However, when she saw the price of the device, she was shocked.
An unusual robbery
We don’t know what iPhone model you had before or how the price of the 14 model might have surprised you, because there is usually not that much difference between generations either. The thing is, when he saw the label, was shocked. At that moment he knew that he could not afford it, so he had to think of options to get hold of the device.
The problem he ran into was that iPhones are heavily protected by anti-theft cables, so pulling or trying to break them was not a viable solution. Instead, what he decided was more drastic, since opted directly to bite the wires. Who would have thought of such a thing? Although, in reality, something similar already happened with a band that did it in Madrid. Given that history repeats itself, it could end up becoming a problem for Apple. Maybe they should start considering changing security cables.
they stopped her
In the store, Qui was very lucky, because although the alarm went off when he was in the middle of the robbery process, the store employees did not see him. nothing suspicious. Everything seemed to be in place and they thought it had been a false alarm. When the announcement passed, the woman continued to bite the cable.
At the moment in which she managed to separate the device thanks to her steel teeth, the woman left the store calmly and with the mobile in her hands. Everything indicated that she had managed to carry out her mission successfully until the police, checking security camerasHe was able to identify her. Although they could have found it if the iPhone had an airtag attached, they did it another way. In the video they saw how she had been moving around the store minutes before carrying out the robbery. It was clearly seen how she thought about what to do and which unit of the exposure devices would be easier for her to steal. They were then able to identify her from pictures of her and trace her to her home.
The police acted quickly, as they arrested her within 30 minutes of the incident. They found her in the vicinity of her home and proceeded to arrest her. She is accused of having stolen an iPhone 14 Plus which undoubtedly has a high price, but surely it would have been cheaper in a few months if he had waited. Or he did not have to resort to the latest model either, but to one of a previous generation. In any case, it seems that everything was a decision of the moment that was not well thought out on his part.
The case we were talking about before, the one that took place in Madrid, was represented by a gang made up mainly of minors who stole constantly over a period of more than two months in the grocery store. Apple of the Puerta del Sol. In this case, the group of thieves was organized and there were some who were in charge of biting and chewing the cables, while others passed the devices from hand to hand until they were removed from the store. The Chinese woman is an isolated case, but it is possible that she had heard about what happened in our country.
