Apple Store Is Efficient And User-Friendly For Thieves

I’ve always found Apple Stores to be open and inviting. A team of thieves in New Jersey evidently agree with me. They smashed the front window of the Promenade at Sagemore store in Marlton, N.J. and cleaned out the display models. How long did it take them to steal 23 Macbook Pros, 14 iPhones, and 9 iPod Touches? Thirty-one seconds. Yes, there’s surveillance video.

The story had a security guard on duty after a previous robbery, but the thieves claimed to be armed. We certainly wish them luck trying to get a SIM installed in those demo iPhones, though.
