ARNOLD, Mo. (KMOX) – Arnold police are asking the public for its help identifying three men seen on surveillance video smashing glass cabinets and stealing Apple electronics at an area Target.
Police say that about 11 p.m. Monday, officers responded to a Target store, 3849 Vogel Road, for a stealing in progress. Three men had entered the store at approximately 10:22 p.m., and proceeded to grab two clothes baskets, two hammers and other items before going to a glass display case holding Apple electronics.
One suspect can be seen on the video breaking the glass case with a hammer, while another man armed with the second hammer acts as a lookout.
All three suspects removed numerous electronics from the case — 13 iPads, 9 Apple Watches, 2 iPhones and other attachments, valued in excess of $28,000 — loading them into the baskets.
They fled the store, with one of the suspects still armed with a hammer threatening an employee. The suspects entered a black, 4-door vehicle with unknown plates.
