San Diego Apple Store Robbery Bags 12 iPhones

A smash-and-grab burglary at the University Towne Center (UTC) Apple Store in San Diego resulted in the theft of a dozen iPhones early on Thursday morning. Local TV station KFMB reported that two men wearing hoodies and jeans broke through the store’s glass front doors and stole the iPhones where they were displayed. One of the men was allegedly carrying a red duffel bag.

The UTC store is located at 4300 La Jolla Village Drive in San Diego, and the robbery took place at about 4:20 AM. A number of Apple Stores have been the subject of smash-and-grab robberies in recent years due in part to the high resale value of even used Apple products.
