In the latest Apple Store break in, the Boulder store was robbed after a ‘hooded bandit’ smashed the glass front with rocks before grabbing an estimated $64,000 worth of gear, The Denver Channel reports. iPads, iPhones and Macbooks were among the things taken, however the greatest loss will probably the broken glass front door, which cost an estimated $100,000.
It is the latest in a series of Apple Store burglaries: the Opera Store in Paris as well as the Temecula Store in California were hit recently. The main reason Apple Stores are targeted is that the products are easy to resell, according to local Colorado Apple repair store owner Rick Levitt:
Apple is like gold. It’s easy to sell.With the economy the way it is people are desperate and they need money and that’s why they’re stealing this stuff
Apple hasn’t yet released the tape of the robbery, however those stolen Apple goods are probably already on the black market or even somewhere like Craigslist, so watch out!
