The break-in eventually set off alarms about 3 AM, and police captured three of the four men. The burglars are being held at the Bergen County Jail.
"This was obviously not a smash and grab," said Police Chief Anthony Jannicelli. "It was coordinated." he added that Apple merchandise was found packed in duffle bags and "ready to go."
A fourth man is still being sought.
The attempt was described as similar to a previous burglary at the Paramus New Jersey Jewelers Exchange in which US$800,000 worth of diamonds and other jewelry were stolen. No arrests were made in that burglary, and Mr. Jannicelli declined to say whether he thought there was a link.
