Electronics thieves in Germany have decided to eschew the subtle approach for brute force. Thieves crashed a car into the Berlin Apple Store this morning and stole all sorts of fruit-branded electronics. And it's not the first time this has happened.


The robbery of the Apple Store, which is the retail arm of a small Californian electronics firm, occurred early this morning when a stolen Opel Corsa was crashed into the store. Thieves took iPhones, laptops, and iPads, and escaped in two Audis.

This is not the first sort of crime like this in Berlin this month. On December 9th, thieves crashed into a Berlin shopping mall and stole nearly $150,000 in electronics.

Berlin's Apple Store took years of planning and is located in an old theater at the end of the longest shopping street in the German city. No word yet on just how much was stolen or what the extent of the damage is, though from the video it appears to be limited to a door.
