Apple store robbed in 31 seconds
Apple stores are known for their clean, modern, and user friendly layouts. What is also now known is that these stores can be picked clean by robbers in under 31 seconds. At the Sagemore, New Jersey Apple Store, a brick, 5 people and 31 seconds later 23 MacBook Pros, 14 iPhones, and 9 iPods were stolen while the security guard was away.
The video, attached below, shows how the thieves managed to ransack the store; it's amazing that Apple does not even use standard laptop locks to hold down their laptops. Apple does use a type of Ethernet cable that when unhooked produces a loud audible alarm.
The store is staffed by a security guard but clever timing and knowing Apple's security procedures allowed the thieves to get in and out before the guard had a chance at stopping them.
The thieves made the entire operation look very easy and may start a string of Apple store robberies. Don't be surprised though if Apple does change its policy in the near future to require laptop locks and other enhanced security measures.
