This store better Watch out!
Four worms stole as many high-end electronics from the Fort Greene Apple Store on Dec. 30, police said.
The quartet of sneaks swiped four white stainless-steel Apple Watches worth hundreds of dollars each from the Flatbush Avenue shop around 3 pm the day before New Year’s Eve, according to cops, who couldn’t say how the thieves managed to escape the store full of geniuses with their illicit time-pieces in tow.
The Silicon Valley tech giant opened its shop on the ground floor of the luxury 300 Ashland tower in December 2017, roughly a year after the company with a cult following debuted its first Brooklyn shop in Williamsburg in 2016.
Earlier this year, Apple head honcho Tim Cook traveled from California to Fort Greene to reveal new products at a much-hyped event at Brooklyn Academy of Music, which locals could watch via a live-stream at the recently burgled store.
Reps for Apple did not immediately respond to a request for comment about the incident.
Anyone with information in regard to this incident is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477). The public can also submit their tips by logging onto the CrimeStoppers website at www.nypdcr
