Thieves nab $6 million worth of Vertu phones

Say what you will about the morality of grand larceny, but this thief had some pretty good taste. The BBC is reporting that four masked men in a black Subaru forced a Vertu delivery truck off the road, at which point they apparently heisted $6 million worth of phones, jumped back in their Subaru, and sped off. No one was hurt in the exchange, save for a considerable amount of British pride and ban ledgers, but the police are still in pursuit of two of the four criminals. Vertu’s are great and all, but if we had to go to the trouble of hijacking a truck full of cellphones, it would probably be for something a bit more current. Does anyone know the HTC delivery routes?
