Apple Store Robbed By NYE Thiefs

ParisArmed robbers in Paris decided to ring in 2013 a little differently than most. They broke into an Apple store and made off with more than a million dollars’ worth of goods, according to recent reports.

The suspects, who wore masks, forced their way into the employee entrance of the store as a janitor was leaving, about three hours after the store’s 6 p.m. closing time, England’s Telegraph reported. The janitor was “lightly injured,” the news outlet said. The Wall Street Journal cited French reports and said a security guard had also been overpowered by the thieves.

The Journal also reported that The Journal said two suspects forced their way in, and the Telegraph reported that four or five suspects total were involved in the robbery.

Authorities said the gang was “well prepared” for the operation and appeared to have cased the store beforehand. The thieves mainly concentrated on boxes of merchandise rather than display items. The whole operation took about 40 minutes, the Telegraph reported.

“They knew exactly what they were taking,” Cristophe Crepin, of France’s USNA police union, told CNN.

The total value of the stolen goods was estimated at about 1 million euros, or $1.32 million. But the exact total is not yet known, as an inventory is still being taken, the Telegraph reported.
