Here's the video footage of the raid:

The whole thing feels amateurish to me. After all, Apple is going to have the serial numbers of everything logged. Not only that, but the MAC addresses and IMEI numbers too. Someone walks into an Apple store Genius Bar with any of this kit and all manner of sirens will go off. Also notice how the thieves don't grab chargers ...

On top of that, the SIM trays on most iPhones I've seen in Apple stores are glued solid making them next to useless.

Oh, and I love the line from the news footage:

"Watch again, as the thieves show skilled practice at the art of bringing down that plate glass door ..."

Wow! Glass breaks when hit by a brick ... really? What will I be told next, that water is wet and fire is hot?
