Products taken from Chicago-area outlet

The Apple Store at Main Place shopping village in Naperville, Illinois (about 25 miles west of downtown Chicago) was burgled early this morning. Thieves broke the glass front of the store in the early hours and made off with approximately $24,000 worth of merchandise, according to police reports.

Police responded to an alarm at the store at 3:45am, discovered the shattered glass entry, searched the store and notified employees. Surveillance footage from the store is currently being reviewed as part of the investigation.

Crime Stoppers has posted a $1000 reward for information leading to an arrest. Crime Stoppers' number in that area is (630) 420-6006. [via Daily Herald]

    I guess it's only a matter of time before

    iron gates become part of the Apple Store design. I'm sure breaking some glass to get to Apple products is a bit to much to resist.

    Light load

    When you hit an Apple store, I'm guessing it's not too much of a burden to make off with $24K of goods. A pair of cargo pants would do the trick!

    A few mac pros and some macbook pros could do that easily.

    nothing to see here

    I checked the original source,

    Turns out by $24K, they meant, one Apple iPhone 5 prototype

    By stealing, they meant a drunk apple employee lost it in a bar.

    By 'breaking the glass' it turns out the person in possession of the phone, is female

    You just have to know how to interpret these stories.

    I have to give some credit to the thieves, unlike alot of idiots out there that say stupid stuff like "Macs suck" because there too poor to afford a Mac, these guys just stole them! There still more intelligent then the Windows using goons.
