Earlier today, reports emerged that an Apple store in Oakland was robbed in broad daylight. The thief yanked out iPhones kept on display without any qualms. The crime comes in the light of California Governor Gavin Newsom launching a fresh set of strategic attacks in curbing crime in the area. While visuals from the theft made their way to the web, many wondered how the man could do his deed without any interference from the cops. The same doubts persisted in the mind of the undisputed champ Claressa Shields.

The masked man went about pulling 49 iPhones off their security chord and shoving them into his pants, as a shocked crowd of Apple staff and customers stood watching. No one from the staff, including the security, attempted to intervene. It must be noted that Apple employees are generally instructed to not intervene when such shoplifting attempts are made, to avoid further confrontation. Generally, some outlets of Apple have designated security personnel who prevent such thefts from happening. However, some stores do not encompass such security staff, like in this case.

As the thief makes his way out of the store with a trouser full of stashed iPhones, a cop car can be seen parked right in front of the store, which the thief then nonchalantly crosses to get in his car and drive away.

While the thief had full access to the demo phones on display, he did not venture into the back room where sealed, packaged goods are stored. Access to this area is usually limited to only some Apple staff. It is also believed that most products kept on display are dummies and do not possess many of the features of an actual sealed iPhone that is up for sale. While the loss incurred in such robberies could be much less, the risk of life of staff and customers still persists.
