Dozens Or Hundreds Of Apple Devices Burgled From Chicago Best Buy

How many Apple gadgets did thieves remove from a Chicago Best Buy this past weekend? Police gave the media a modest estimate of only $42,000 worth of iPads, MacBooks, and GPS devices. However, an unnamed source whispered to CBS Chicago that the figure could be closer to $200,000, with the haul including a few hundred iPads.

According to police, the nine-man crew entered by ramming their van into a garage door at the rear entrance. They knew the store well enough to remove take stock from an inventory storage area just inside, which makes detectives suspect that one or more former employees could be involved.

Surveillance footage from the store is not yet available to the media or to the public.
