The driver of a stolen truck carrying around 22,500 LG smartphones has been arrested in Gary in the U.S. state of Indiana.
IT news service CNET quoted police in the neighboring state of Kentucky as saying the suspect was arrested on Monday.
The smartphones, which are the new G2 model, are worth W12.7 billion (US$1=W1,061) and went missing at a stopover in Kentucky on Monday en route to mobile carrier Sprint.
The suspect, identified as Juan Perez Gonzalez, was arrested after ramming the truck into a telephone pole. The phones were apparently unscathed.
The FBI, Louisville police and Kentucky state police arrested Gonzalez for theft and fleeing the scene of an accident.
Gonzalez posted bail and is free while police are investigating whether he had any accomplices. The truck was stolen while the driver made a restroom stop.
