If we had a section on iDB called “people with terrible luck,” this story would fit in perfectly. On Tuesday, 5 people entered the Apple Store at Town Square in Las Vegas and started stealing iPhones, iPads, and laptops in front of everyone – can you imagine the balls on these guys?

The thieves most likely realized that someone was going to call the cops but they probably thought that by the time cops show up, they’d be long gone. What they surely didn’t know is that plainclothes officers happened to be right outside the Apple Store, working on an unrelated case…

The cops saw the whole scene and they tried to arrest the thieves as soon as they came out of the store. Apparently, only 2 of the 5 thieves were captured and taken into custody.

I don’t know about you, but I love those stories.

    They only could seize 5 x.x sucks. But the cops saw them so they will get them soon.

    Good for the cops. Kind of funny they can rob the store right in front of them, and their capture rate is only 40%. There has to be a joke for that.

    I wish the people in Pittsburgh would stop doing this here. I have heard they have hit the shadyside store at least 3 times.

      Each cop caught one robber, that’s 100% capture rate

  • woooooowwww….it’s kind of sad how people will steal this stuff. I love Apple’s products, but they are pretty simple, but sleek. i really like to jazz mine up with some fun cases from psyclopshq.com

  • It doesn’t matter apple remotely kills all of them making them bricks…

      I dont think they can do that on the iPhone iPod Touches and iPads they might be able to on the laptops

    Poor guys
