125 iPads stolen from San Carlos Best Buy
SAN CARLOS, Calif. -- Thieves stole approximately 125 Apple iPads from a Best Buy electronics store in San Carlos Thursday night, according to the San Mateo County Sheriff's Office.
Deputies reported to the store at 1127 Industrial Road at about 11:50 p.m., one minute after the commercial alarm began sounding when the suspects pried open the store's front doors and a security roll-up door, according to the sheriff's office.
The deputies determined that the suspects slid under the jacked-up security gate and dragged a large locked steel rack containing the 125 tablet computers through a fire exit door and onto a vehicle.
Sheriff's officials said the loss to the store is estimated to be more than $100,000. According to Best Buy's website, the latest generation iPads retail for between $500 and $830, depending on storage and networking options.
The suspects fled the scene and had not been found as of this morning. The sheriff's office said there was no description immediately available for them or their vehicle.
Anyone who has information about the burglary is asked to contact sheriff's Detective Victor Bertolozzi at (650) 363-4057 or to call the office's anonymous tip line at (800) 547-2700.
