Possibly connected to earlier T-Mobile robbery
Thieves smashed a plate-glass door at the Apple Store on Walnut Street in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania early this morning, making off with over $10,000 worth of merchandise, police say. The robbery occurred just before 4:30am and may be connected to an earlier burglary at a downtown T-Mobile store that also involved smashing a glass storefront at about 1:40am. Police say surveillance video at both locations should reveal if the crimes are connected.
iPhones, iPods and computers were taken from the Apple Store, which originally opened September 4th, 2004 in the well-to-do Shadyside neighborhood. The store was renovated in July of 2009.
