£5m of Apple products stolen as lorry driver and security guard tied up in brazen robbery on M1

BRAZEN thugs have stolen Apple tech worth a whopping £5million in a motorway heist.

A lorry driver and security guard were tied up during the shocking robbery, which happened on the M1 in Northamptonshire.

Cops were called after the lorry was stopped on the southbound slip road at junction 18 between 7.45pm and 8pm last Tuesday, November 10.

The HGV was then driven to Eldon Close, a cul-de-sac at an industrial site in nearby Crick, where the trailer was hitched to an awaiting truck.

The robbers then drove away, leaving the lorry driver and security guard behind.

Detectives investigating the incident say the truck was later found across the county border in Lutterworth, Warwickshire.

It's believed the offenders took the vehicle there before putting 48 pallets of Apple products into a third vehicle.

The daring raid happened as stores prepare for the Christmas rush.

Police have urged anyone who might have seen a number of vehicles which may have seemed out of place on the slip road at the relevant time.

Drivers with dash-cam footage, as well as anyone offered Apple products for sale in unusual circumstances or at low cost are also asked to contact cops on 101 quoting reference number 20000595599.
