Bandits flee with $ 9,000 in Apple Watches in the US

Another case of theft Apple Stores happened in the United States, more precisely in the city of Franklin (Tennessee). This time, however, the target of criminals was not iPhones or Macs, but Apple watches.

According to surveillance images released by FOX 17You can see three individuals walking into the Apple CoolSprings Galleria and then (calmly, it is worth mentioning) picking up Apple Watches from the display table while there were many customers in the store.

According to police, the criminals took 17 watches, the equivalent of $ 9,000. The action took place on October 25 and so far those involved have not been identified.

Although Ma has taken some steps to prevent criminal actions in its US stores (such as deploying special software that essentially renders the gadgets subtracted from their stores), the Apple Stores model favors this kind of action, since the devices are "available" on the display tables, that is, there is not much to run, after all customers should try the devices before buy them.

Something has to change to curb it all, though.
