Thieves Steal From Apple Store By Dressing Up As Employees
Now I'm no criminal sympathiser, but if you're going to succeed, you have to think outside the box.
And at the risk of sounding like an enabler, these guys dressing up as Apple workers and stealing from Apple stores is five-star ingenuity.
Last week, 19 iPhones were taken from a store in SoHo, New York, thanks to two guys wearing a blue T-shirt imprinted with an Apple logo.

The devices pinched by one of the men from a draw in an Apple repair room were worth a total of $16,130. He then handed the phones to another thief, who hid them under his top and walked out.
This isn't the first time an incident like this has occurred - a total of 67 iPhones were stolen by three thieves from New York's Upper West Side Apple store earlier in the year.
The store is used to training new employees. Because of this, you'd probably be forgiven if you didn't suspect a face you've never seen before wearing employee clothes as a thief.
It's not been revealed whether or not the T-shirts were genuine Apple clothing, or close replicas, but maybe Apple want to rethink their procedures against theft.
