Smartphones linked to a big Belgian heist are being unloaded in batches of 100
Because the phones are unlocked and have Belgian model numbers they are believed to be swag from the largest iPhone heist to date -- an industrial-scale B&E in which thieves cut a hole in the roof of a warehouse in Antwerp province and hauled off 3,000 to 4,000 iPhones.
Belgium is one of only three countries in Europe that sells iPhones without a SIM-lock, which makes the stolen phones easier to fence -- at least in theory.
The owner of a shop at Gorbushka, speaking on condition of anonymity, told iPhone.ru last week that the "Europeans" -- as the hot iPhones have been dubbed -- have already started to appear in the market's shop windows.
