A group of four thieves in Fresno, California, were able to steal $27,000 worth of Apple products in less than 30 seconds Saturday.
In surveillance video taken at the Apple Store, several hooded people can be seen briskly moving through out, targeting and scooping up the expensive electronics left on display. Many patrons can be seen looking on, while a family towards the front appears very worried that the act of burglary could mean further trouble. A separate woman and a little girl both rushed to the ground to hide under the table.
One man, presumably a bystander, tried to get in the thieves’ path. He originally slowed down some of the fleeing, but was thrown to the ground. He was given credit for his attempt.
“One customer stood by the door to prevent them from leaving but was knocked out of the way,” said Lt. Mark Hudson of the Fresno Police Department, according to ABC7. “Right now we are looking for four, or five, we believe there was a getaway driver, black males anywhere from 16 to 18 years old.”
No security guards could be seen in the recording, but one person wearing a black shirt (sometimes the uniform for Apple Store employees, and the apparent one at this location) walked to the front of the store and seemed to communicate to someone about the robbery with a device.

The suspects did not brandish any weapons, say authorities. This incident may be related to a string of similar robberies.
