Five thugs broke into a Marlton, New Jersey Apple Store in a "smash and grab," and were able to take 23 MacBook Pros and 14 iPhones and iPod touches, all in 31 seconds. In the Philadelphia ABC local affiliate report embedded below, you can see the entire crime as captured on Apple's security films.
The thieves used a large rock to break the front glass of the store, and used a fairly systematic approach to grab the portable and valuable items.
In the sensationalized reporter's coverage, the robbery is described as "spectacular." With a dash of hyperbole, the reporter said, "Later, the security guard is seen running in, after the thieves had practically picked the place clean leaving only the price tags behind."
The police are looking for five males in connection to the crime, and anyone with information is asked to call police at 856-983-1118 or the local confidential tip line at 856-988-4699.
