Smash & grab gang loots New Jersey Apple Store...
A quick smash and grab robbery at a New Jersey Apple Store cost the retailer more than $50,000.
In less than a minute, five men stole dozens of electronics at the Apple Store Sagemore located in Marlton, New Jersey just after 2 a.m. Wednesday.
The men approached the store, threw a brick through the glass front door and began looting, according to Evesham Township Police.
The robbers scared off a security guard stationed inside the store by motioning as if they had a weapon, police said.
Fortunately, the guard was not hurt.
In the end, 23 MacBook series notebook computers, 14 iPhones and nine iPod Touches were stolen.
This is not the first time the store was robbed.
Several months ago two men broke into the store in the same fashion and stole several devices.
Police have not said if the incidents were linked.
