Police: Greenwich Apple Store Robbed Again

GREENWICH, CT (WCBS 880) – Thieves seem to love the Apple Store in Greenwich.

Police said there have been five thefts at the location in less than two years.

The Greenwich Time reports five men rushed the store at closing time Sunday and swiped seven laptops and an a number of iPhones amounting $8,000 to $10,000 in value.

Police are looking for a possible link between this incident and a robbery at an Apple store in White Plains, N.Y. over the weekend.

Meanwhile, the debate in Greenwich continues over Apple’s plan to install floor-to-ceiling gates inside the doors.

Local merchants and officials believe the gates would detract from the aesthetic of the elegant shopping district. The Apple Store has two large glass doorways that are arched and framed with whitewash brick.

Apple has no comment on the matter.

It’s been suggested the store hire a security guard.

Any security suggestions for the store? Let us know below…

    This town has gone downhill since that store was put in. We never had so many robberies. I dont even want to go in there. Maybe giant companies should stick to the malls.

    They could always take all the product off the shop floor at the end of the day, lots of stores do that!!!!!

    “It’s been suggested the store hire a security guard.”

    Of course it’s been “suggested” – by some town elder who runs a security firm.

    I think you just need to double tap a couple of these monkies and that will solve the problem.
