Apple Store Robbery: When everybody else in Paris was partying on New Year’s Eve, a gang of thieves had something else in mind. After the Paris Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) store closed at 9 p.m. Pacific time (1700 GMT), the thieves waited three hours and then entered the store.
As reported by Dow Jones Business News, things obviously went as planned for the robbers. When everything was said and done, they left the store – which is located behind the Palais Garnier – with roughly $1.32 million in product.
In the report, a Paris police representative is quoted as saying:
It is too early to give an accurate estimation of the damage. An inventory is taking place to determine the exact amount of the damage.
Even if the initial estimate regarding the loss is high, it is safe to say that hundreds of thousands of dollars in inventory was stolen.
What about security?
