Cell-heist hysteria: Hundreds of high school kids’ gadgets stolen

Device storage trucks provide a place for students in New York City to keep their phones during the day while they’re in school. Students pay a dollar a day for the trucks to hold store their phones so that they don’t get into trouble for having their devices. The New York Post reports that outside of a Bronx high school, one of those trucks was robbed and hundreds of cellphones were stolen along with cash.

Not cool!

Hundreds of Bronx high-school students are about to start summer vacation without their precious cellphones and iPods after three armed thugs stole the gadgets yesterday from a truck that stores them for about $1 a day.

The kids, who use the ironically named Safe Mobile Storage because electronic devices are banned from school, scrambled out from Christopher Columbus HS in a panic when word of the heist spread at about 11 a.m.

“They took my iPhone and my iPod Touch,” said Brandon Solas, 18, as he stood helplessly outside the truck parked down the block from his Bronxdale school.

“My mom is going to clap me — she’s going to kick my ass!”
