Armed Robbery at Paris Apple Store

More than _1,000,000 worth of Apple products stolen during New Year's Celebrations.

It seems that not everyone was celebrating the coming of a New Year on Monday night. Whilst the police were pre-occupied dealing with the celebrations around Paris, masked thieves executed a raid at France’s flagship Apple store in Paris.

Christophe Crepin, an Unsa police union official, told Le Parisien newspaper that "the four hooded and heavily armed criminals made their move very quickly. Most of the police forces were being mobilised to monitor the Champs Elysees, so the robbers have clearly benefitted from this opportunity to strike."

Mr Crepin said the robbers mainly took "a lot of goods" and very little money. Early estimates were that the haul was worth well over 1 million euros, or close to 1 million pounds.

The weapon wielding criminals struck at around 9pm via a secondary entrance. They ransacked the store taking iPads, iPhones, iMacs and the likes for around 40 minutes before leaving in a van. There were no casualties besides a janitor who suffered minor injuries in the process.
