A manhunt is underway after £5m worth of Apple tech products were stolen from a lorry in a daring heist on UK M1 motorway.
The lorry carrying 48 pallets of Apple products was intersected just before 8pm on the southbound slip road at Junction 18 in Northamptonshire Tuesday with the driver and a security guard tied up during the heist, police said.
The lorry was then driven to Eldon Close in Crick, where the robbers attached its trailer onto an awaiting truck.
They then drove off leaving the lorry driver and security guard behind.
The truck was later found across the county’s boarder in Lutterworth, Warwickshire.
There, the offenders are believed to have transferred the load of Apple products into a third vehicle.
Northamptonshire police said they would like to speak to anyone who may have seen a number of vehicles, which may have looked out of place, on the slip road at Junction 18 on the M1, between 7.45pm and 8pm on the night of November 10.
They would also like to speak to anyone who may have been offered any Apple products for sale in unusual circumstances, or who knows of anyone who is selling such items at low-cost prices.
