A suspect drove through the glass windows of an Apple store in Berkeley early Friday morning and made off with store merchandise, police said.

Officers responded around 2:50 a.m. to a report of an alarm at the Apple store at 1823 Fourth St. and found a car inside the store surrounded by glass debris, according to Berkeley police spokeswoman Officer Jennifer Coats.

By the time they arrived officers found the car empty and "signs of prowl inside the business" but no suspects, the spokeswoman said in an email.

Several laptops and iPhones were stolen but police have not received the complete list of all the items taken, Berkeley police Sgt. Jennifer Louis said.

Police said it appears the suspect intentionally drove the car into the store in order to burglarize it.

Investigators are attempting to gather surveillance footage from the store.

No suspect description was available and no arrests have been made. The store remains closed.

How about a photo of the car in the store? It is so boring that Patch only uses stock, generic images!
