Video Captures Hooded Thieves Ransacking San Francisco Apple Store

Viral footage released by the San Francisco Police Department shows two back-to-back robberies at an Apple store involving a group of people wearing hoodies.

A group of bandits in hoods ransacked a San Francisco Apple store twice in one week, stealing thousands of dollars’ worth of devices, The Huffington Post reports.

Surveillance footage from the Marina District outlet shows a group of people swarming the store on two occasions, once on Nov. 25, and then again on Nov. 29.

The thieves were in and out within about 20 seconds, leaving the staff no time to react besides watching their merchandise disappear.

The second time the incident occurred, employees could be seen rushing to the front of the store to chase the thieves out and ushering real customers away from the area.

The San Francisco Police Department (SFPD) released the footage from both robberies last week. They have classified the crime as commercial grand theft.

The total value of the devices that were stolen is unclear. It is also unknown whether both robberies were carried out by the same people, but no arrests have been made as of yet. SFPD is currently seeking information from the public to help get to the bottom of this before the group(s) strike again.
