Film has been released of the moment when a driver smashed his car into an Apple store in the US. The film shows a gang with their faces covered grabbing as many iPads and iPhones as they can from the display tables.

But the security gate on the front of the shop fell down behind the car. The men had to hit the gate again many times in order to drive away.

Police arrested one man with the keys to the car in his pocket. But the 22-year-old man says he hasn’t done anything. Police are looking for three more men.

You can watch the video in the Level 3 section.
