Video: Teens steal $13,000 in iPhones during ‘flash mob’ robbery


On Wednesday evening a group of seven individuals made up of males and females entered the Mall and went directly to the Apple Store. These individuals, while clad in hoodies and/or hats to shield their identity, surrounded the area of the store where iPhones are on display. In orchestrated fashion these individuals cut the security cords and exited the store with 19 phones. Apple placed a value on the loss in excess of $13,000. The group fled easterly on foot and despite an extensive search was not located.

It is thought this group may be connected with a similar event that occurred in Hingham a few weeks ago.
