Paris Opera Apple Store targeted by armed robbers, heist estimated at over $1.3M

The Daily Mail has today reported that robbers have hit Apple’s flagship French Store. The criminals apparently began the organised heist at around 9pm CET , and involved the theft of over $1.3 million (around £1 million) worth of Apple products, as some sources now estimate. The gun-wielding thieves are yet to be tracked down by the police, but one official has made  statement to a local newspaper.

As The Daily Mail writes:

Christophe Crepin, an Unsa police union official, told Le Parisien newspaper that ‘the four hooded and heavily armed criminals made their move very quickly. Most of the police forces were being mobilised to monitor the Champs Elysees, so the robbers have clearly benefitted from this opportunity to strike.’

Mr Crepin said the robbers mainly took ‘a lot of goods’ and very little money. Early estimates were that the haul was worth well over 1 million euros, or close to 1 million pounds.”
