I was just in an Apple Store while it was robbed

Reddit user tells first hand what it’s like to experience one of these mob shoplifting events that happens much too often.

Apple puts any stolen goods in a lost or stolen mode, rendering any gear stolen from the store useless to the thieves. So why do they do it? Either ignorance, or they’ve got access to a spare parts market.

And yup, it’s shoplifting, not robbery, but the bigger point remains.
