UPDATE: The Apple Store is open again and the robbers were caught, he left his license plate at the scene.
Early this morning an Apple store in the Promenade mall in Temecula, CA was smashed and grabbed by unidentified suspects in an unidentified vehicle, presumably a truck. The incident happened very early last night. No reports of injuries or even employees in the store at the time of the robbery have been reported. Multiple suspects broke into the store by driving a truck into the glass windows of the store and stole various Apple hardware and left undetected by local law enforcement. As of this hour, the suspects have not been apprehended but the case is actively being investigated and let it be known that they will be caught.
The Apple Store in that mall remains closed as employees and officials try to pick up the pieces and rebuild what was probably the most popular store in that mall. Whether or not the store will reopen for the iPhone 5 release in a few weeks has yet to be determined, but my guess is that it won’t be considering the amount of damage involved. It is a really great thing that no one got hurt there and for that I am thankful and I hope the perpetrators will be caught, arrested and dealt with to the fullest extent of the law.
