A San Francisco Apple store was targeted on Wednesday in a smash-and-grab robbery that took place in broad daylight, resulting in the loss of thousands of dollars of merchandise.

Police said the “brazen daytime burglary” took place in front of employees and customers after four male suspects, appearing to be black males between the ages of 14 and 18, entered the Santa Rosa Apple store, according to police.

The suspects, who had been wearing black and gray sweatshirts and jeans, along with face masks, left the store with over $20,000 in merchandise before fleeing in a vehicle, police added.

The Santa Rosa Police Department released surveillance images of the suspects in action and is asking the public for any information about the theft. People are encouraged to call SRPD Property Crime Investigations at 707-543-3575. Refer to case #21-13043.

The Apple store robbery comes days after 80 burglars wearing ski masks and holding crowbars robbed a Nordstrom in the San Francisco area.

With a rise in brazen, seemingly organized robberies in California, there has been increased opposition to a string of laws passed in recent years, including Proposition 47, which reclassified felony theft under $950 as a misdemeanor.

“As a Democrat, I believe in criminal justice reform. There are inequities in our system where we need to create a justice system for all,” California Sen. Melissa Hurtado told the Washington Examiner. “However, we have gone too far. The state of California has been doing it wrong. It needs to change.”
