WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. – A pair of brothers and two other men have been accused of stealing nearly 1,200 laptops bound for public school students in New Jersey.
Prosecutors say 43-year-old Anton Saljanin, 40-year-old Gjon Saljanin and the two other men are set to appear in court Thursday. They're charged with conspiracy, theft from an interstate shipment and related offenses.
Investigators say the brothers drove a truck last year to pick up a shipment of Apple laptops worth $1 million. Authorities say Anton Saljanin later reported the truck stolen and said he found it in Connecticut with the laptops missing.
Prosecutors say the account didn't add up and they discovered that two other men sold dozens of the laptops.
The brothers' lawyers tell The New York Times they expect them to plead not guilty.
