Molchanov first found an empty box of electric tongs in the store’s warehouse, and then put the Apple Watch SE and iPhone 12 in it, and was able to successfully sell these products. The man then stole nine more iPhones and brought them out of the store in a meat grinder box. He also managed to pass it on to an accomplice.
Molchanov managed to steal 22 more phones before he was caught. In total, the stolen amount exceeded two million rubles. The man pleaded not guilty. The court sentenced him to five years in the colony of the general regime with a fine of 500,000 rubles.
