What I hate almost as much as a thief is when watching people put their safety in jeopardy by trying to save some iPhones or laptops from being taken.
Men ran into an Apple Store in Fresno, California on Saturday (July 7) and stole everything they could get their hands on. According to reports, the foursome made off with 26 items totaling $27,000 in merchandise.
The individual at the door could have seriously been hurt trying to stop the criminals. That equipment on the tables are insured for cases such as this and Apple doesn’t invest in security so they know this could happen at any time. Security cameras will catch who these thugs are.

The Fresno Police Department is investigating a robbery at the Apple store at Fashion Fair Mall.
Lt. Rob Beckwith said police are searching for four men who stormed the store around 11:30 a.m. Saturday and took items off the display tables. “They were going through people and just grabbing stuff,” Beckwith said Sunday.
Police initially got a report that the incident was an armed robbery, but later determined that the alleged heist was quick and no weapons were used. Beckwith said investigators are describing the alleged robbery as “a large grand theft” due to the product value and that there was significant monetary loss. An exact amount was not given.
It was also unclear what specific items were taken by the men. Beckwith said detectives looking into the case may use surveillance video in the investigation.
Apple has a way of protecting their equipment also. They have tracking on their devices so when they are turned on or connect to the internet, those who use the stolen merchandise won’t get very far.
