Pack of thieves stole $13,000 in iPhones from Mass. store

The incident is similar to a theft in Hingham a few weeks ago

NATICK, Mass. (AP) — Police are looking for an organized group they say conspired to steal thousands of dollars of iPhones from an Apple Store in Natick.

The Natick Police Department has posted on Facebook video surveillance of the crime, which occurred Wednesday. A group of seven men and women, wearing hoodies and hats, is seen walking into the NatickMall. They’re later spotted standing near the Apple Store before suddenly rushing together toward the display cases.

Police say the group worked together “in orchestrated fashion,” cutting the security cords and taking 19 iPhones before leaving the store on foot. Apple has valued its losses as in excess of $13,000.

Police say the incident is similar to a theft in Hingham a few weeks ago. Anyone with information is urged to contact Natick police.
