Mission:Impossible fans rob Best Buy
I know I'm supposed to be on the side of the security guys, but sometimes you just have to admire a set of thieves (this is why crime movies are so popular, I'm guessing). Check out these guys who robbed a Best Buy in Jersey by rappelling through a hole in the roof:
They didnâ€™t appear on store security cameras. They cut a hole in the roof and came in at a spot where the cameras were obscured by advertising banners.So, pretty clearly, they knew the security system inside and out, just like Tom Cruise knew all about that security system that protected the NOC list in the first Mission:Impossible. Don't touch the floor! Not even a bead of sweat! So, that leaves us with two possibilities: 1. They were employed by the Best Buy (or some other Best Buy); 2. They cased the joint extensively and nobody noticed. Seems like you'd be able to catch the guys either way. However, there's one indication they may be too smart for the authorities:
Police believe thatâ€™s how some brazen bandits managed to swipe 20 Apple notebooks early this morning at a Best Buy on Route 1 in South Brunswick without detection.That's right: They stole only Macs. Clearly, we're dealing with highly intelligent crooks here. Even some guy named John Harris, who's "an expert in security who has consulted on thousands of burglaries," agrees with me:
"I would say they were a professional crew," said Harris, who is based in Atlanta, Ga., but does work throughout the nation. "At least Iâ€™ve never dealt with anything like this. From time to time, people break in, but not usually through the roof."You heard Harris: It's an unprecedented level of sophistication. I mean, they came through the roof! Clearly, Harris needs to watch more Mission:Impossible movies.
