Nearly $64K Stolen in Boulder Apple Store Smash-and-grab

| News
Apple's Boulder, Colorado, retail store lost about US$63,813 in merchandise in a smash-and-grab burglary on February 16. The suspects made off with iPhones, iPads, and Mac laptops, and also destroyed the front door worth more than the merchandise they made off with at about $100,000.

According to the Boulder Police report, the suspects smashed through the store's front door at around 2:16AM with three large rocks. Surveillance footage showed what looked like a man wearing a black hoodie and baseball cap, along with white gloves, making off with the display table computers, iPads, and iPhones.
 
Boulder Police Investigators are looking for additional information on the crime and are asking anyone with tips to call 303-441-1974. Anonymous tips can be left at the Colorado Crime Stoppers number at 1-800-222-8477 or 1-800-444-3776, and at the Crime Stoppers website.
 
Apple has hired extra security to watch the store, and presumably the replacement door that's worth more than the computers it protects.

They smashed the front door of the Apple Store in Boulder with three LARGE ROCKS.
This is right up there with the guy that parked his Lincoln in the Lincoln Park Apple Store.

I suspect a roving gang of criminal punsters.

An insured door.

Geoduck, going with your logic it’s going to be a pretty messy job after the “Walnut Creek” Apple store gets hit.

UPDATE: Apple testing impact resistance to canon-fired frozen chickens. Threat to Tyson’s Corner store acknowledged.
