Twenty one Apple Store robberies have been reported in Caltifornia since May 2018 with six Bay Area stores being robbed in a matter of weeks, reports ABC.

Surveillance footage caught recent heists in Corte Madera, Walnut Creek, Emeryville and Santa Rosa. Thieves also hit the Berkeley Apple Store and the Burlingame Apple Store this past Sunday.

On August 22nd, hooded thieves stole $19,000 worth of merchandise from the Corte Madera store. A bystander captured the robbery on camera.

"I realized that these guys were coming to do something," said the witness. He notes that security just watched. "Basically they were just standing there looking at their cell phone."

In San Francisco, Apple has started placed uniformed police officers in front of its stores to prevent further incidents. "I think it's just an overall deterrent when they are casing these locations on whether or not they're going to go in and steal these products," said San Francisco Police Officers Association President Tony Montoya.

Check out some footage of the robberies in progress below...

For the revenge Apple will make their customers pay.

That’s great! And why are pedestrians doing the cops job? Apple won’t give you a free product for helping catch the suspects. That’s not even close to pocket change for Apple.

That is basically every store ever. Almost every company has that policy, so I don't think that that is the real problem here..
