Thief arrested for snatching copper pipes at site of Apple's new campus
A man accused of attempting to steal copper hardware from the site of Apple's new "spaceship" campus in Cupertino has been arrested, San Francisco's CBS affiliate is reporting. The man, named Glenn Cartwright, (who may or may not own an Android phone) was apprehended by sheriff's deputies with the help of both a sheriff's department helicopter and a police dog (who could have possibly been named Siri).
Apple security personnel noticed that the gate to the work site had been opened after they shut it earlier in the night on Saturday, November 30, and proceeded to call the authorities (possibly using their iPhones). After Cartwright (who may have spent his last few dollars on a Windows 8 tablet during a Black Friday sale) was found, a stash of copper pipes and wiring was discovered nearby.
The new Apple facility isn't slated to be completed until 2016, so there's still plenty of time for Cartwright to plan out a more well-thought-out heist (perhaps with the help of an Amazon "Mayday" support representative on a Kindle Fire HDX).
