Paris thieves nab $1.3M in Apple products in New Year’s Eve robbery

In a heist that could have been taken directly out of a Hollywood movie, armed and masked robbers made off with an estimated $1.3 million in Apple products during a heist of an Apple store in central Paris on New Year’s Eve. According to Dow Jones Business News:

“The robbers gained access to the store via a service entrance where they assaulted the store employees, and then “calmly” picked through the boxes of Apple products, taking iPhones, iPads and MacBook laptop computers. The store closed at 1700 GMT (9 p.m. Pacific time) on Monday with a single security guard and a cleaner present, and the thieves entered three hours later.”

The robbers then apparently loaded the stolen products into a vehicle and fled the scene. According to French news reports, the estimated loss was pegged at around $1.32 million U.S., though the police have not confirmed that amount.
