Two held after raid on Covent Garden Apple Store

Two people were held on suspicion of burglary yesterday following a smash-and-grab at the Apple Store in London's Covent Garden.

Police were called at around 1am after one of the store's windows was smashed and a haul of Apple devices was stolen. It is thought around seven masked raiders riding mopeds and motorcycles were involved. A 16-year-old boy and 21-year-old man were arrested on suspicion of burglary. Police say the value of the stolen goods runs into thousands of pounds.
