iPhones, iPads stolen at Changi Airport

Two men were charged last month in Singapore court with stealing electronic devices worth more than S$1.4 million (US$1.1 million) from an airfreight terminal at Changi Airport. The duo allegedly made off with about 1,900 iPads, 1,500 iPhones and 1,000 pieces of accessories from the cargo terminal in Changi Airfreight Centre. They were arrested by airport police on 2 October. More than 2,000 pieces of the stolen devices are believed to have already been sent out of the country. The court proceedings were not without drama however, as one of the accused claimed he was mistreated by police during investigations, saying he was forced to drink his own urine and made to put a toilet brush into his mouth. Singapore Police have said they will investigate the claims.
