Second heist nets greater reward
The Sagemore Apple Store in Marlton, New Jersey has become the victim of a second robbery in the space of just over four months, say reports. In Thursday's incident, captured on video, five men attacked the store shortly after 2AM, breaking through a glass facade with a large rock. In a little over 30 seconds the group is said to have taken 23 notebooks, and 14 iPhones and iPod touches before fleeing into a nearby residential area.
A security guard was present at the time of the theft, but is said to have been unarmed, and threatened by a robber who motioned that he had a gun. The guard was posted because of the earlier robbery, which took place on March 10th. That heist involved a much smaller take however, including eight notebooks and eight iPhones, worth roughly $16,000.
