Watch a BMW X5 crash through the front of the Apple Store in a smash and grab robbery attempt.

Tech-Shizzle reports "the driver of the break in vehicle, one Equonne R. Howard (22), drove his own 2003 BMW X-5 through the glass and drop down gate. A passenger loaded up on iPods and iPhones (no MacBooks or MacBook Airs!), as Howard tried to repeatedly back the BMW out of the store after the gate dropped back down behind him."

The BMW ended up getting 2 flat tires during the attempted robbery, the Riverside Press-Enterprise. One of them was changed nearby and after trying to fix the other with a stolen can of Fix-A-Flat the vehicle was abandoned a mile from the store.

During the heist, the front license plate came off the vehicle. When Howard returned to the store in an attempt to retrieve it, he was arrested. The key to the BMW was still in his pocket.

Howard is being held on bail of $600,000, the estimated value of the damage done to the store.

Yeah, only idiots and morons wanted apple. Smart people knows that Apple implemented tracking system on every devices without user consent. Whereever you go, Apple knows. Which stupid people doesn't know they are being tracked by using Apple devices?

If anything it shows that someone is actually willing to break into an Apple store for Apple's products...when was the last time you heard of ANYONE breaking into ANYTHING for a samsung or android phone...people know quality and are willing to do stupid things to get it...unlike those laggy ass android phones that come out every 2 months because they didnt make it right to begin with lol, a phone every year is fine with me, its called quality over quantity...galaxy note 2(big S3)is about to come out...but damn didnt the first one just come out earlier this year, android is that girl that sleeps around, IPHONE is that WOMAN you marry...think about that for a sec.

That's mean you are a criminal too! You are afraid that someone will discover your dirty mind... So stupid to think that someone is making a quality device only to trace you... pffff. And off the record: sim cards are traceable so it will be smart not to carry any phone... Also even if you by an Apple product, they will take off trace elements from the phone because you are not so important in this society!
