The worrying series of invasions at Apple Stores in the United States won another episode yesterday (2/9); this time, the target of the assailants was the Apple Burlingame, California. With this, it is the fifth time that Apple stores in the bay area (Bay Area) from San Francisco are invaded only in the last two weeks. According to the police, all cases occurred in a similar way and, therefore, can be attributed to the same group.
In yesterday's robbery, a group of men wearing hooded jackets rushed through the front door of the store at around 11:30 am (local time) and ripped exposed iPhones and MacBooks off the tables, as reported by NBC. The action was recorded by security cameras at the store and lasted a few seconds.
Last week, Apple Emeryville and Apple Santa Rosa Plaza, in the same region, were also targeted for similar robberies. Two weeks ago, Apple Corte Madera was stolen in addition to two other stores, the Apple Rosedale Center and the Apple Fashion Fair.
In most of the above cases, the thieves successfully escaped after the break-ins; however, in others, the assailants did not have the same ?luck?. A few days ago we reported that, during the Apple The Oaks robbery attempt, Ma's store customers themselves immobilized two suspects until the police arrived.
Apple uses special versions of its software for all gadgets that are displayed on display tables in their stores and, therefore, they basically become a paperweight when stolen from the store. As in the case registered at Apple The Oaks, it is possible that the stolen products are sold in parallel markets, or else the profit of the robbers comes from the resale of some parts of these devices, you will know
