PALM BEACH COUNTY, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — The Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Department is on the hunt for several suspects believed to be involved in an organized ring of Apple (NYSE:AAPL) IPad and IPods from at least one area Wal-Mart. Here is the official release from PBSO:
On October 30, 2011, at approximately 11:00 p.m., several suspects committed an organized IPad and IPod theft at Wal-Mart located at 4375 Belvedere Road, West Palm Beach.
What we believe occurred is three black males pictured below entered Wal-Mart together followed by the black females. The suspects selected a backpack, crowbar and headed towards the back of the store where the electronics are located.
Suspect 1 – walked behind the show case where the IPads and IPods are kept and used the crowbar to pry open the door. Suspect 2 – walked back and forth acting as a lookout then went behind the counter to assist suspect 1. As the two suspects were filling the backpack with IPads and IPods the remaining suspects acted as lookouts walking around the area.
All five suspects were able to get away with several IPads and IPods.
About 30 minutes later (approximately 11:34 p.m.) the same suspects and vehicle traveled to the Wal-Mart located at 6294 Forest Hill Blvd, Greenacres. They committed the same organized theft where IPads and IPods were stolen.
Detectives believe these suspects have been operating in Broward County as well.
