Two grand thefts at separate Apple stores in San Diego appear to be connected, according to San Diego police.
The loss at Fashion Valley Mall was worth approximately $20,000, said Paul Connelly, a SDPD Captain in the western division.
Thieves stole four MacBooks and at least 10 iPhones from demo tables at the Apple Store in Fashion Valley, according to employees.
The UTC Apple Store in La Jolla was also robbed 30 minutes before the one in Fashion Valley, police confirmed. Officers responded to the Fashion Valley theft around 10:30 a.m. Friday.
Several suspects came into the store and grabbed the display items, setting off the alarm. Both burglaries at the separate stores had suspects with similar descriptions.
There are no reported injuries. San Diego Police Detectives could not release further information because it may jeopardize their investigation.
