The group robbed the store at around 2 AM on the 2 January 2012. A a taxi driver spotted the crime and started following the robbers away from the scene.

The robbers actually started firing guns on the taxi driver when they noticed that they were being followed. Taxi driver followed them anyway. He was able to make enough of an identification (along with security camera footage) that cops were able to arrest the three thieves.

Apple Stores are targeted by thieves, not only because they have expensive, re-sellable products, but also because the store designs often mean that all it takes to get in is breaking a window.
