Commercial Robbery & Burglary Series

Up to $1000 Reward

San Diego County Crime Stoppers, along with investigators from the Carlsbad and Escondido Police Departments, are asking for the public’s assistance in identifying and locating several unknown suspects who have committed a series of grab and runs at Apple stores. 

Since January 2018, the Carlsbad and Escondido Apple stores have been targeted in a series of grab and runs. During these incidents, a group of suspects typically enter the store wearing hooded sweatshirts or jackets, with the hood portion tied closely to their heads, which conceals most of their faces. The suspects grab multiple Apple devices on the display tables and exit the store where a getaway car is usually waiting for them. 

In several of the incidents, citizens have attempted to stop the suspects and have been injured by the suspects as they flee the store. Investigators believe this series is related to similar cases throughout California. To date, the losses throughout the state have exceeded approximately $750,000. 

Suspect’s Description: 

The suspects are described as Black males, in the early 20’s, and wear hooded sweatshirts or jackets with the hood portion tied closely to their heads. There may also be an unknown female suspect involved in this series.

Anyone with information on the identity or location of the suspects is asked to call the Carlsbad Police Department at (760) 931-2156, the Escondido Police Department at (760) 839-4739, or the Crime Stoppers anonymous tip line at (888) 580-8477.
