Watch: Apple Store get robbed in 15 seconds, twice, 4 days apart

Apple Store in San Francisco doesn't give a f#*k
Below is a security footage of three thieves running into Apple Store in San Francisco's Marina District, grabbing Apple products, and running out, on November 25, at 5:40 p.m. local time.

The same store was robbed four days later, November 29, at 6:20 p.m. local time where four hooded robbers entered the store, swiped a bunch of Apple products and ran out — all in less than 15 seconds.

The San Francisco Police Department posted the security footage of both robberies last Friday in an effort to find the robbers.
