Seven suspects were arrested in connection with rumors of Apple Store theft that took place across the Bay Area. Multiple law enforcement agencies cooperated to conduct an organized criminal investigation targeting the Apple Store in each region.

Auckland police said, "We arrested several individuals and helped arrest another law enforcement agency with a criminal warrant." These arrests continued "in connection with large-scale crimes committed throughout California."

Auckland police said California Department of Justice will immediately provide detailed information on arrest and related crimes.

Recent Apple Store crime wave

The storm of theft at the Apple Store in California has been in the red in the past few months. Most of them are doing very similar acts. A male enters the store, grabs as many display devices as possible, and then runs out. In most cases, they ran away on the waiting escaping car.

The target area includes the Apple Store of Emeryville, Santa Rosa, Marin County, Fresno. In the first half of today I wrote about the Palo Alto Apple store stolen twice on weekends. The Apple store at Roseville Galleria Mall received four robberies in 20 days, including twice within 24 hours.

Recently, the security of the mall at the Santa Rosa Plaza Shopping Center in California was detained when one of the thieves tried to escape from the Apple Store. It is not clear whether his arrest has anything to do with the police who bumped the gang behind other robbers. Also, it is unknown how many robbers are working in a coordinated fashion, which one of the robbers is probably so.
