Highway heist: Thieves steal $590,000 worth of iPhones from moving delivery truck

It's a heist straight out of "The Fast and The Furious."

Five Romanian men were arrested by Dutch police after they allegedly stole $590,000 worth of iPhones from a moving truck.

It was the latest in a string of 17 suspected robberies by the gang, according to NLTimes.

Police said Monday that the five men, aged from 33 to 43, allegedly stole the iPhones in a late-night raid a week ago by driving a modified van so close to the delivery truck that one of the suspects was able to clamber across the van's hood and break into the truck while it drove along a Dutch road. The suspect then passed boxes of iPhones back to the van.

The men were arrested Saturday at a holiday park in the central Netherlands, where police also recovered iPhones and the van they believe was used in the theft. The suspects are to appear in court Tuesday.
