The Holy festival Christmas is ahead and most of the shops are filled with people with their friends, families, and relatives. But, a few days ago, few thieves appear running through the Apple Store, picking various Apple products, ripping off various iPhones and within few seconds they disappear.
Watch An Apple Store Get Robbed In 15 Seconds
We all know that currently, we are in the shopping season, as the Christmas is ahead and it has gone from a religious festival to a consumer feast. As the shops are filled with people with their friends, families, and relatives.
As the technological devices are a temptation and it is not surprising that images such as those we are going to see are becoming more frequent. In this case, 15 seconds were enough for the thieves to carry thousands of euros on Apple devices.
November 25th, 17 hours and 40 minutes, full street and the normal bustle of a big metropolis. Three thieves break into the Apple Store and, with all hands available, rip the devices that are kept on the display tables.
The images, which can be seen in the video below, were captured by Apple Store security cameras in the Marina District, a neighborhood located in San Francisco, California. In them, three thieves appear running through the Apple Store, picking up various Apple products, ripping off various iPhones and clocks, and within 15 seconds they disappear.
This same store would again be assaulted only four days later, on November 29, at 6:20 pm local time. The modus operandi was similar to the first: four hooded thugs entered the store, grabbed several Apple products and ran out from the door – all in less than 15 seconds.
Ironically, the tech giant Apple has perhaps made it easier for its products to be stolen. As the Apple Stores might be viewed at first blush as easy targets for the thieves. The stores are generally wide open and simple to enter and exit.
However, the San Francisco Police Department posted the safety images of both the robberies last Friday in an effort to find the thieves.
