    Come on, it's really not THAT hard... first of all there is NOTHING at all "gangsta" about cutting a whole in a roof and rappelling down from a 16 ft ceiling. "Gangstas" have trouble robbing gas stations, much less doing anything requiring some intellect.

    And I seriously doubt it was an inside job or an employee too, because obviously whoever it was is making more money than to have to work 9-5 at an electronics store.

    You don't have to work there to know how the security systems work, or where the apple section is located. You go in and pretend to be a shopper, scout out the location over the course of a few weeks. You watch the manager and employee shifts, you read all the signs you can, you could even sneak into an "employees only" area pretty easily and get a good look around.

    Any professional would recognize the security system in place based on the arming device near the door. You recognize the system, you know you can't touch the floors. Finding the location to cut the whole in the roof is pretty easy, any GPS device could tackle it, even an iPhone. Go to the apple section and pretend to be shopping and pin point the GPS location on your iPhone. Cake.

    When you get on the roof, go to that pinpointed location and cut the whole. Rappelling isn't that hard either, it's just a matter of physical fitness.

    ^ it's not a laser, and it's not a "visible" beams.

    How hard is that to understand. I think maybe you smoked yourself retarded.

    "Any professional would recognize the security system in place based on the arming device near the door. You recognize the system, you know you can't touch the floors. "

    fail- the type of system (ie. Brand) can usually be easily determined by looking at the "arming device" (Lol-it's a keypad, genius). However, knowing the brand of panel gives absolutely no indication as to what type of peripherals might be wired to it. All major Hardwired security panels use zone inputs that can have nearly any kind of standard 12v powered or non- powered sensor, could be motion detector, magnetic reed switch, glassbreak detector( acoustic or shock), etc.

    Also the reason I seriously doubt the part about them not being able to touch the floor is: the only way for that to be possible is to use pressure mats, which are very rarely used anymore. Pressure mats are usually only a few square feet and are usually placed at stategic locations ie. Inside doors, bottom of stairway, etc. To cover and entire floor with 100's of them would be a ridiculous and unnecessary task, since newer technologies do a better job at a fraction of the cost.

    Same here. I bought the Denon Receiver in my sig from this very store. This is pretty boss though. Someone willing to go through all this almost deserves to get away with it lol.

    The part I don't get is how the alarms didn't go off when the rubble hit the ground. They were sawing the roof so debris had to fall into the actual store. Am I right?
