Thieves steal from Apple Store in seconds

Investigators are reviewing the surveillance footage from the inside the store to see who the young men are, and if the crime might be connected to a similar robbery in Downtown San Luis Obispo last month.

This story originally appeared in the New York Post.

The crimes took place so close together it's not impossible the second was inspired by the first.

As the CCTV footage shows, five hooded men entered the Apple Store in NY, roamed around for a couple of minutes and then ripped out around 21 iPhone display units primarily consisting of the iPhone X and iPhone 8 and ran away. With a 13-inch MacBook Pro starting at $1299, it's a safe bet that they got away with over $10,000 in loot.

In a weird heist that was caught on camera, a crew of thieves allegedly made off with $27,000 (Rs 18.6 lakh) worth of Apple laptops and iPhones in mere seconds.

Has an Apple Store near you ever experienced such a brazen robbery?

On Friday, group of hooded thieves snatched $19,000 worth of iPhones from a New York Apple Store. The MO was the same, though this time there were five men in hoodies. The Fresno Police reported that among the purloined products were various Apple iPhone models including the iPhone 6, iPhone 7, iPhone 8 and the iPhone X.

The thieves then leave the store manoeuvring through the customers. It would be unfortunate if such crimes became common, though.

Since Apple's display iPhone and Mac units are locked down, it is unlikely that the thieves will be able to sell them in the market.
