Campbell Police Release Surveillance Video From Fry's Heist

Campbell Police is urging the general public to be cautious about buying Apple products from online sites such as eBay and Craigslist.

Campbell Police released the surveillance video from the Friday, Aug. 10.

Nearly 300 Apple products—iPods, iPads and iPhones—valued at $163,000 were stolen from Fry's Electronics Aug. 8 around 12:15 a.m.

According to the Campbell Police log, at least two, and as many as five burglars pried open the front exit door, pried open the electronics cage and stole numerous iPads, iPhones and iPods.

The burglars then fled to a waiting car on the southbound Highway 17 onramp through a hole they had cut in the east fence, the log stated. 

No further leads in the case have been made at the time of this release.

"We are encouraging people to be wary of purchasing equipment from individual sellers and to purchase only from trusted retail sources," Campbell Police Capt. Charley Adams said in an email.

You mean to tell me there were no alarms notifying police on the front door of Frys? No alarms where they broke open the door to the ipads etc? I cannot believe this. The time it took these thieves to enter the store, get to the room housing the merchandise they stole the entire Campbell police could have been there and surrounded the area. Shame on Fry's for not securing their store with alarms directly to the police station etc. I work at a school and if you enter any room an alarm notifies the police department. I hope those responsible are caught. I am not blaming the Campbell police department but Fry's, you've got to do a better job of securing your store.
