“[There was] 24-by-18-inch hole carved in the wall leading to what seems to be the Apple Store’s back room. I find it surprising that we served as their route to the Apple Store. I had no idea that we were so near or nearby to them. Until they showed up for work the following day, the staff of the Apple Store was unaware that the goods had been taken.
