apple-storeA MOTORBIKE gang trashed a shrine to Steve Jobs in a $100,000 break-in at London's Apple store last night.

The thugs rode up on motorbikes just after 1am today, trampling a shrine of flowers, cards and messages of condolence left by Apple fans mourning the loss of the computer genius who died last week.

The men, all wearing full-face helmets, smashed windows and escaped with a reported £50,000 worth of Apple products including iPads, iPods and Mac computers.

The Sun newspaper reported that two people - a 16-year-old boy and 21-year-old man - were arrested on suspicion of burglary

DS Nathan Tozer, a detective with the Metropolitan Police, said: “Although two men are in custody on suspicion of burglary, the inquiry continues and other persons are sought.

“It is essential that anyone who saw the smash-and-grab, or the suspects making off, contact us as soon as possible.”
