“Palo Alto police said 8-10 burglars stormed an Apple Store in downtown Palo Alto just after 4 a.m. after crashing a rented SUV through the shop’s 40-foot-tall glass windows. Officers responding to a dispatch call found a badly damaged 2016 Kia Soul abandoned on the sidewalk near the scene at 340 University Ave,” Andersen reports. “Officers then located a second vehicle at 445 Bryant Street, just across the street from the Apple Store, with numerous Apple computers and phones lying on the ground nearby, which they recovered.”
“Officers searching the area detained four individuals for questioning, all of whom were later placed under arrest for burglary, vandalism and conspiracy felony charges,” Andersen reports. “Police arrested 19-year-old Shaquin K. Ferguson and 18- year-old Erica Jaynisha White as well as two teenage males.”
