    Deputies surround a shopping cart in the parking lot of the San Marcos Fry's Electronics.

    San Diego County sheriff's deputies are looking for a person who tried to steal a cart full of Apple MacBooks in San Marcos.

    The store had only been closed about 45 minutes when we're told a cleaning crew saw a suspicious person inside the Fry's Electronics store late Sunday night.

    They saw a person, dressed in black and wearing a mask, inside the building around 9:45 p.m., officials said.

    In their search for the burglar, deputies found a shopping cart full of MacBooks and DVDs near the store.

    Deputies brought in a helicopter and K-9 unit to search for the suspect but had no luck.

    It’s believed the burglar may have been in the store while it was still open, and waited until employees left before trying to steal the items.

    MacBooks sell for approximately $1300 to $2000 each.
