A CCTV Footage recorded a group of young men stealing expensive apple products from an Apple Store in California. It is reported that it took them just 20 seconds to steal a total of 26 items worth $27,000.
The store is situated in Fashion Fair Mall in Fresno, California. According to Lt. Mark Hudson of the Fresno Police Department, the thieves took away various iPhones, including iPhone 6, iPhone 7, iPhone 8, MacBooks and even the new iPhone X.
Thieves arrived wearing hoodies and in no time ripped off the gadgets from the display tables. Before Apple Store employees and customers could realise that what was happening, they were already gone. This is because all this happened in the blink of an eye.

A customer had tried to stop them outside the entrance of the store.
Lt. Hudson said, “One customer stood by the door to prevent them from leaving but was knocked out of the way. Right now we are looking for four, or five, we believe there was a getaway driver, African-American males anywhere from 16 to 18 years old.”
He also said, “There are other reports, of other places, from other cities in California that have had these kinds of takeover thefts. So we are looking into (this crime) being connected to other crimes, at any other Apple Stores outside of Fresno.”
