Burglary Attempt At NJ Apple Store Foiled

p> Four men used pry bars, sledgehammers and saws to break through the wall from an empty furniture store into the Apple store at Ticeis Corner in Woodcliff Lake, New Jersey on Monday, according to the Northern New Jersey News.

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.
