Fool me once shame on you, fool me twice shame on me. I think the Apple store security should be definitely ashamed of themselves. In spite of the fact that they had almost $40,000 worth of goods stolen in November 2016, they didn’t beef up its security.
The robbers just hit the store again, carting away $24,000 worth of Apple hardware, just six months after being cleaned out the first time.
According to the local ABC affiliate reports, the store was robbed by a gang of five individuals who were able to make off with a total of 17 iPhones, three iPads, and two Mac computers. The thieves were spotted by a security guard but managed to evade capture, and nobody knows whether they escaped the area on foot or in a vehicle.
The robbers entered the store just after its regular closing time of 8 p.m
It’s worth noting that The Village at Corte Madera is an open air mall, where stores are grouped into small strips. This would make it easier for criminals to make their escape since, unlike a traditional closed mall layout, stepping out of the store itself puts you outside. The Village boasts “24-hour professional security for our stores and guests,” but it looks like they might need to rethink their strategy a bit.
