Apple store robbery: Not-so-smart phone smash and grab

Help

A California man has pleaded not guilty to vandalism and burglary, after security cameras caught a dramatic raid on an Apple store.

Police authorities say Equonne Howard, 22, crashed his car into the shop in Temecula, before stealing a number of iPads and iPhones.

The vehicle's way out was blocked by security gates, which badly damaged its tyres in the attempt. Police found the car a few streets away with two flat tyres. Howard was arrested when he returned to fix them.
