    For some, New Year’s Eve is the time to be reunited with ones friends and family, in order to celebrate the coming a new and better year. For others, things are apparently not that simple. The flagship Apple store in PAris was the scene of an armed robbery during New Year’s Eve.

    The events started unfolding at around 9 p.m when armed individual broken in the Palais Garnier Apple store and stole different Apple items. The store is situated in the vicinity of the Galleries Lafayette department store. The police is currently investigating the break-in. It seems like the robbers took their time and appropriated a lot of products, as the loss was estimated somewhere between 1 million and 1.25 million euros. However, the police hasn’t officially confirmed the sum. A Paris police spokeswoman commented:

    "It is too early to give an accurate estimation of the damage. An inventory is taking place to determine the exact amount of the damage. The price of an iPhone 5 is typically 679 Euros ($895) in France.”

    The robbery was apparently well planned. The perpetrators threatened a security guard, but the only casualty to result from the attacks was a janitor who was “lightly injured”. The burglars then escaped in a van with all the loot.

    Christophe Crepin from the UNSA police union commented on the situation as well.

    "They prepared their coup pretty well. Since the essential bulk of police forces were mobilized to patrol the Champs-Elysées, the thieves clearly profited from the opportunity to make their move.”
