One of the hottest videos on the Web today is the surveillance tape of a burglary in progress at the Sagemore Apple Store in Marlton, N.J, 12 miles from Camden.
It shows five perps in masks smashing the plate-glass doors, signaling to the security guard that they had a gun, and clearing off the display tables with the efficiency of a Indy 500 pit crew.
The take: 23 MacBook Pros, 14 iPhones and 9 iPod touches in 31 seconds flat. Estimated value, based on average selling price: $46,345.
The burglars hit the store at 2:05 a.m. Wednesday morning. Anybody with information that could lead to their arrest is asked to call police at 856-983-1118 or the confidential tip line at 856-988-4699.
Below the fold: the video, courtesy of WPVI-TV, the local Philadelphia ABC affiliate. Also, a link to video of last week's 2 p.m. MST hit on an Apple Store in Chandler, Ariz., in which a half-dozen iPhones disappeared in the blink of an eye.
Thanks to TUAW's Michael Rose for spotting this.
