How An Apple Store Is Mightier Than A BMW
Okay this one gave me a good laugh on an otherwise dreary Monday morning. Last month burglars rammed into the Apple store in Temecula, CA with their SUV and absconded with a bunch of store display iPhone 4s and iPads. Unfortunately for them, despite the massive BMW X5 they were driving, they had quite a bit of difficulty getting out of the store, as you can see from the video.
In the process of trying to escape, they lost their license plate and blew a couple of tires. Once they got out, they stopped at a nearby convenience store to change a tire and then rob the 7-Eleven of a can of Fix-a-Flat. When they realized they had lost the license plate, the owner of the BMW went back to the store, with the keys of the car in his pocket, to retrieve the plate. The police were very happy to see him return to the scene of the crime. Easiest arrest they've made all year, I bet.
