Thieves Dressed Like Apple Workers Stealing iPhones

How the hell did I miss this story?!?! It looks as though crooks are taking a page out of the Walmart playbook by wearing employee uniforms to walk off with thousands of dollars worth of Apple devices.

Then, last Tuesday, three thieves used the ruse to net 59 iPhones worth $44,000. This time, a man dressed as a worker walked over to the store’s Genius Bar help desk and snatched handfuls of new iPhone 6s from a storage drawer, said police and the company source. He handed the batches off to a female accomplice hiding out in a nearby bathroom, where she stuffed them into a duffel bag, the source said. The third male crook acted as a lookout.
