According to a report on KDVR website, investigators are looking for a man who stole $63,813 worth of goods from an Apple retail store on Saturday morning.
“Police responded to 1755 29th Street just after 2 a.m. after the Boulder store’s alarm went off,” Brooke Way reports for KDVR. “Officers found three large rocks that were used to break the glass entrance door, which police say was custom-made and is valued at approximately $100,000.”
According to the report:

Video captured the suspect stealing various laptops, iPads and iPhones from security fasteners that attached them to display tables, according to a police report.
Security officers at the shopping center said they did not see anything unusual prior to the burglary. Apple store managers have hired extra security because of the incident.[/quote]
Last Decemeber we reported that New York Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg pointed an accusing finger to the thefts of Apple’s iPhones and iPads as the reason for the high crime rate in New York.
“Put it in a pocket in sort of a more body-fitting, tighter clothes, that you can feel if it was — if somebody put their hand in your pocket, not just an outside coat pocket,” the mayor said at the time.
However, thieves are now targeting Apple retail stores where they are looking to get more money for their efforts.
The police want anyone with information to contact Dispatch at (303) 441-3333. Non-emergency information may be left on the Boulder Police Department’s Tip Line at (303) 441-1974, according to the report.
