If he hadn't gone all the way in, the gate would have stayed on the roof and he could have just backed out...

Yes, the cars are always stolen and unfortunately this is a common occurence. Highest theft areas are south west and south east.

Yes, ruin your whole life for stealing outdated Apple products. At least wait for the new stuff to come out.
And I get to deal with these idiots at work every night.

Ummm... This is hilarious... The news reporter thought the crooks used THEIR BMW to do a crime like this. I'm a cop and obviously they stole this car or at the very least took this car from someone, a acquaintance lets say, they don't really care for without that persons knowledge/consent. They also wore masks and gloves which means they thought this thing ahead of time and it wasn't some drunk random thing someone did with their own car. I saw this on the news and the news reporter said "they left behind a license plate how dumb of these crooks!!" How dumb of the reporter... Yea they left behind their license plate cause its not their car... it won't be traced back to them.

Two things: either what g0at23 said is true or this is FAKE!

it looks so Fake and planned! Apple is known for doing dumb things to hype up their products.

I read this on another forum the guy is stupid he used his own car. Then realize he lost his license plate went back to see If he can pick it up and got caught at the scene or atleast hat I herd. Either way man these people are stupid couldn't even wait for the new iPhone to come out. Also for people that's upgrading how do you connect your iPhone to BMW now since the cord change

I think we can all agree the real winner here was the gate, it's been telling people all this time bet I could stop a car if it came through here and it did a valiant job in proving that, good job gate, good job.

And here I was thinking that they've come up with some ingenious way to speed up the lineup for the iPhone 5's launch.

I like to watch stupid criminals.
The amount of Apple gadgets they stole is not sufficient to cover the damage bill done to the X5

The driver forgot to turn off the Nanny switch, he would have made through the security gate with one attempt.

too much of this doesn't make sense. They really didn't think it through haha. Or maybe there were people smart enough to get these idiots in to trouble. Either way pretty entertaining haha
