The Apple Store in Covent Garden was ransacked last night after a gang of youths on mopeds did a number on the high-tech London shop and scarpered with easy-to-grab but expensive gadgets such as iPads, iPhones and other items from the fruity inventory. The total value of the goods stolen hasn’t been revealed.
It’s believed that seven riding raiders were involved in the break in, each with passenger, and that those involved in the theft range between the ages of 16 and 21. Several have since been apprehended and police have said “Although two men are in custody on suspicion of burglary, the inquiry continues and other persons are sought”
Detective Inspector in charge of the investigation appeals: “It is essential that anyone who saw the smash-and-grab, or the suspects making off, contact us as soon as possible.”
In the past week tech fans have been turning up at Apple Stores across the world in abundance to pay tribute to their hero, Steve Jobs. Jobs was the inventor and entrepreneur who founded the world’s richest tech company and gave the us the much desired gadgets which were lifted in this raid at the Convent Garden location – the glass fronted juggernaut of tech consumerism which is the largest Apple Store in the world.
