Shoplifting continues to be a problem in a down economy and a lock on an iPad case is not a big enough deterent for criminals who want the latest iPad. Unknown subjects made their way into the Target store and stole several iPads from a locked case. The crime unfolded on July the 4th, Monday. The thieves actually broke out the glass on the case, grabbed the iPads and fled the area. A similar theft occurred at the Best Buy store that is about a mile and a half away from the Target store. There, a store employee was sprayed in the face with mace. A total of 18-iPads were taken.
The iPad thieves are described as a white woman with blonde hair in her 40;s and an older white male who is about 6-feet tall. The couple may have had a teenager with them at the time of the thefts.
