Oakridge Apple Store Robbed

Global BC | Three men rob the Apple store at Oakridge

Quote:
Police are on the hunt for three men after they robbed the Apple Store in Oakridge Mall.

Shortly before 7:00 p.m. tonight, three men entered the Apple Store and sprayed bear mace into the air and stole a small number of electronics before running out of the mall.

Officers arrived and searched the area for the suspects with the help of a police K9 unit. Some of the stolen items were recovered, but police were not able to find the three men responsible.

There were about 40 customers in the store at the time of the robbery. Five people were treated at the scene by paramedics for exposure to the bear spray.

Anyone with information about the robbery is asked to contact the Vancouver Police or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
Oakridge always has such shitty luck, I wonder what they managed to steal

The Apple Express line is my guess. Lots of iPods around that area that are just on the table.

I thought all the display items have different builds? Like, iPad chargers are on the rear opposite side of the screen vs the real device which has it at the bottom, wouldn't make much sense to steal if we don't have the right charger..?

No... don't think so. Should be a regular unit with demo firmware loaded.

EDIT: At least that's how our demo units are...

probably stole headphones and high end accessories. They are not locked down or tagged like the apple products on the table.

Sucks for the workers, seems like Oakridge has seen a rise in burglary within the past year.

Oakridge was always getting jacked, especially that jewelry store-at least once a year.

When I worked at Club Monaco we always had people stealing stuff.

Actually there's an exit right between it and The Bay(?). I don't think they woulda run through the whole mall to the sky train entrance.

Club Monaco at oakridge? THAT'S LONG TIME AGO.

Every retail gets alot of people stealing their stuff. Metrotown is the worst for some reason.

There's really no use for people to steal from Apple or any electronic from stores since they all have serial numbers attached to it. It isn't hard to find the product.

I would think that using the Skytrain as a getaway would be the worst thing to do because the entire area is monitored by CCTV and you have to wait 2-4 minutes for a train.

Stolen bikes as getaway vehicles would be pretty effective for small electronics, I would think.

nah it's an old joke on RS that Canada Line displaces the bums/drug users/the seedy population from the downtown core to other parts of town...hence the "rise" in robbery at Oakridge.
