2 men are charged and 1 is sought for picking the fruit at Apple store

Two smash-and-grab thieves have been charged with “Apple picking” computer gear from a store in the Cherry Hill Mall early on Christmas Day, and a third suspect is being sought, according to the Associated Press.

Police say the thieves gave themselves nearly $36,000 worth of products from the Apple Store for Christmas. The men allegedly pulled up in a stolen car, put on ski masks, threw rocks through windows to get into the store, and filled trash bags with merchandise.

Police were already after them by the time they got back in the car, and chased them until they hit a dead end, authorities told the news service. The men fled on foot, leaving the stolen items in the car.

The two men who were arrested were identified only as being 22 years old, from Willingboro.
