No Apple employee was present in the Apple Store at the time of theft as the mall had already closed for the night.
Two burglars reportedly stole 436 units of iPhones by breaking into a Apple Store at the Alderwood Mall, Seattle, Washington. According to a report by MacRumours (via King 5 news), thieves cut a hole in the bathroom wall of a coffee shop next door to get to the backroom of Apple Store, bypassing Apple security system.
A spokesperson for Alderwood said they are ‘angry’ and ‘working with Lynnwood Police’ to help solve the incident. The Lynnwood Police were able to obtain the surveillance footage of the theft, but have not released it yet as the footage is an important part of the investigation.
Nothing was stolen from the coffee shop, but will have to incur a repair cost of $1,500 to replace the bathroom wall.
Apple has not commented on the incident.
