THIEVES ransacked the Apple store, Southland, early Tuesday morning, and got away with an unknown quantity of high priced stock.
They used bolt cutters to gain entry to a vehicle ramp and drove to the first level where they smashed entrance doors with sledgehammers.
It is believed two security guards who spotted the thieves approaching retreated to the emergency exits.
The offenders smashed windows to the hi-tech store and loaded stock into containers they had brought with them. The value of the stock was being assessed yesterday.
They then left “at speed” in a light-coloured car and a dark coloured car north on Nepean Hwy.
Sergeant Nigel Fox, of Kingston CIU, said the thieves stole iPads, laptops and mobile phones in the raid but their value was not yet known.
