A group of acrobatic thieves pulled off a Mission Impossible­­-esque caper at a Best Buy in South Brunswick, NJavoiding—avoiding all motion sensors, alarms, and cameras by entering the venue from the ceiling. How did they accomplish this exactly? By climbing to the roof via gas pipe, cutting a hole through the metal roof, and suspending themselves with a 16-foot rope making sure not to set off the ground sensors. All that work for 20 MacBooks appraised at a quarter of hundred grand.
