A computer store next to a police station in Majuro was broken into last Sunday morning. It was reported that thieves stole over $10,000 worth of merchandise.
What is remarkable about this fiasco is the fact that the robbery took place in plain sight: The window robbers broke into is facing a main road intersection and the store literally sits across the road from the Delap local government police station.
The business, Majuro Computer Service, is a hub for the latest digital gadgets.
As of Tuesday, Majuro Atoll Local Police Criminal Investigation Unit reported to MCS that suspected robbers have been apprehended.
Store Manager Todd Mulroy expressed disbelief over the fact that nobody saw anything, especially the fact that the robbery took over ten minutes and the robbers took their time passing stolen merchandise out of the window they broke.
Todd said the main thief captured in video surveillance targeted the electronic smoking device called vape before he went on to collect random items that he handed out the broken window to accomplices.
