A drug dealer, who perhaps was sampling a bit too much of his own product, accidentally shipped a large package of crystal meth to a Manhattan Apple Store.
A worker at the shop in Grand Central Terminal opened a box delivered by FedEx on July 7 and was stunned to find two pounds of the drug inside, according to the MTA.
The sender was arrested by MTA police on July 11, reported authorities. The name of the arrested man was not released.
An unidentified Apple Store employee told the Post the store was closed briefly following the discovery of the package’s content. Apple declined to comment.
In other Apple-related crime news, an Iowa man was arrested on August 27, after he allegedly stole 35 iPhones from a Sprint store at gunpoint. He was arrested after he led police on a chase in his stolen car.
Keith Edward Lomax, 31, of Des Moines was released from jail late Sunday and ordered to appear in court next week.
According to police reports, a Sprint store employee told a Des Moines police officer that a man entered the Sprint store at 2545 E. Euclid Ave. at about 5 p.m. Saturday, approached her and held what appeared to be a black handgun to the back of her head. Sgt. Paul Parizek, a spokesman for the Des Moines Police Department, said the weapon was later found to be a BB gun.
Lomax then pointed the gun at everyone in the store and told them to put their hands up and to move to the back door of the store, according to police reports.
After the suspect crashed his car, he was arrested and charged with first-degree robbery.
