Like jewelry stores, Apple[1] retail outlets packed with expensive gear evidently make tempting targets for thieves. Early Monday morning, a gang of 10 robbers on five mopeds broke into the flagship UK Apple Store in central London’s busy Regent Street, by driving a moped through the glass front doors, the Evening Standard reports[2]. They threatened two security guards with hammers, and left after three minutes.

The raiders managed to escape with iPhones[3], iPads[4] and Apple Watches[5]. Two iPhone X[6]s were later recovered. The store was back to normal operation later that morning.

Apple did not immediately reply to a request for comment.
