Man took many phones – level 3, A12
CCTV footage has been released of the moment a driver smashed an SUV into an Apple store in the US before stealing thousands of dollars worth of electronics.
The surveillance footage shows a gang with their faces covered grabbing as many iPads and iPhones as they can from the display tables.
But the burglary appeared to be cut short after the security gate on the front of the shop fell down behind the vehicle.
The burglars were forced to ram the gate again numerous times in order to make their getaway.
LA man Equonne R Howard has been charged with multiple felonies, after he was arrested with the keys to the BMW in his pocket. But the 22-year-old has pleaded not guilty to all of them.
Three other suspects are yet to be identified.
Interesting words: CCTV footage (public camera film), SUV (big car for travelling in nature), surveillance footage (film from police), ram (drive into something very hard), getaway (escape from a place), felony (serious crime), plead not guilty (say that you didn’t do it).
