Paris Apple Store Raided On New Year's Eve

New Year's Eve is usually a time of celebration. And, whether you prefer to go out or stay home to avoid the madness, clubs and bars are usually exceptionally busy on December 31. It seems a group of thieves in Paris decided to take advantage of the fact that police were focusing on revelers and carry out a robbery. The four men were ringing in the New Year in style after pulling off a successful raid on Apple's Paris retail location on Monday night.

According to the BBC, Apple's Paris retail store was broken into at around 9pm on New Year's Eve. The raid saw over a million euro in stock lifted from the store, which translates to roughly $1.3 million. Police say four masked men carried out the raid after forcing their way into the shop about three hours after closing. 

Police have not confirmed whether the reported value of stolen goods is accurate, nor did they discuss any potential suspects.

    "Robbery" involves the threat of physical violence. This is a case of "theft". Robbers point guns; thieves break in after hours.

    So they took stuff with a RETAIL price of $1.3 million ... which means about a few hundred bucks in actual value.

    In poker, such a move is called a "re-steal".

    Usually "raided" in a news article makes you think of a police raid. A "Raid robbery" makes absolutely no sense.
  • Lets be realistic this is 1 million euros in iSheep money, they see it kind of like monopoly money.
