BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — Anyone who has ever shopped at the Boca Raton Apple (NYSE:AAPL) Store — located in Boca Raton’s Town Center Mall– may simultaneously ask “how this is possible,” while also thinking, “it’s a zoo in there, of course it’s possible.” Boca Raton Police tell us that an Apple Store worker reported that someone walked into the store, walked to the “east” counter — which we believe to be the area of the Genius Bar — and walked out with a 17-inch display valued — according to the police report — at $2,499. The man is described as wearing a beige hat, light blue long sleeved shirt, shorts, and sandals.
No surveillance video is being released at this time.
The Boca Raton Apple Store is small, often overcrowded, and suffers from apparent management issues that routinely lead “Genius Bar” appointments to be delayed by as much as an hour — possibly explaining how a monitor could be stolen during peak business hours without anyone noticing.
There are no suspects at this point.
