Le Great Apple Robbery

Armed robbers took advantage of New Years celebrations to attack a Paris Apple store, stealing up to $1.3 million (€1 million) in goods.

A well-planned armed robbery of a Paris Apple store resulted in the loss of goods valued at approximately 1 million euros.

According to police, four masked men forced their way into the store on New Years Eve around 9PM Paris Time. The store had closed 3 hours earlier and the men threatened a guard at the back entrance. Police were concentrated elsewhere to focus on New Years celebrations.
