A Berkeley police investigation into a series of Bay Area Apple Store burglaries in recent months has netted two arrests with charges filed, court papers show.

Police say they were able to link members of the same crew to two burglaries at the Berkeley Apple Store on Fourth Street in August, a burglary at the Emeryville Apple Store on Sept. 4 and a burglary at the Apple Store at Valley Fair Mall in Santa Clara one week later.

The Scanner learned of the BPD investigation last week through independent research into Alameda County court records.

The two suspects had already been linked to a “brazen smash and grab robbery” at Macy’s in Walnut Creek that was “widely publicized,” BPD said.
