Four masked people broke into the Apple The Woodlands store in Texas on Monday, August 29, and made off with hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of brand-new merchandise.

According to local news channel ABC 13The Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office dispatched officers to the store in The Woodlands Mall around 8 a.m. local time.

Police say four suspects broke into the store. “A large amount of merchandise was stolen from the store,” the sheriff’s office said in a press release, “including more than 200 Apple Watches, more than 50 AirPods and more than 220 phones.”

“The suspects were seen leaving the scene in [a] gray four-door passenger car,” it continued.

The Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office asks anyone with information to call them at 936-760-5800, or Crime Stoppers at 1800-392-STOP.
