Police are searching for thieves who stole more than $100,000 worth of Apple products from an Apple Store in Beavercreek, OH on Monday morning.




A team of three thieves broke into the Apple Store at The Greene, Cedar Park Drive, Beavercreek at 5:40am on Monday. The early-morning raid had the group taking products from displays and in storerooms, and filling up bags with the hardware.

The team fled the scene in a dark-colored sedan, believed to be a maroon Ford Focus.

According to the City of Beavercreek Police Department, more than $100,000 in Apple products were taken. However, after arriving at the scene, police instructed Apple employees to activate tracking and alert features on the products.

The move had a big impact, as most items were thrown away in Trotwood and recovered by police.

Police are still looking for the suspects, and asks the public if they have information that could help the investigation, they should contact the Beavercreek Police Department on (937) 426-1225.

    It amazes me that with all these similar thefts that the police would need to ask Apple employees to enable tracking.

    It seems like this type of criminality would stop in its tracks if their was a way to engage retail product tracking.  After all it’s built in and must Apple products have a somewhat charged battery.

    They're display units, thus fully charged, and do have tracking, which they enabled, and it did stop them in their tracks as they discarded the stolen goods. ¯\(°_o)/¯
