Another Store Burglarized

August 28, 2007

Burglars smashed the front window of the Saddle Creek (Memphis, Tenn.) Apple store at 4:22 a.m. this morning and within 60 seconds had stolen $25,000 worth of merchandise, including 10 iPhones, one iMac and six MacBook laptops. Police said the break-in triggered an alarm and an officer arrived less than a minute later, but the suspects had already fled. Some fixtures and two digital cameras were damaged, apparently as the burglars tried to move quickly. Police are investigating if the crime is related to several at Patton Comptuers & Electronics earlier this summer, which prompted the store to post video of the crimes. The University Village (Seattle) store was burglarized on August 22nd, and the Country Club (Kansas City, Mo.) store was hit August 13th.
