• Copper Caper Clipped at New Apple Campus



    Police have taken into custody a man trying to rob Apple of some lucrative copper at the site of its new spaceship campus.

    The would-be thief, however, didn't blast off with the goods. In fact, the commercial burglary in progress was intercepted before the alleged perp could flee with the loot.

    The copper wire caper was foiled by Santa Clara County sheriff’s deputies. Aiding the authorities on the ground were a sheriff’s helicopter and a police K-9 unit. It was one of the dogs who found the alleged criminal red handed.

    Local reports note that the man refused to obey deputies’ orders and was subsequently "bitten by the dog." The man's bail was later set at $11,000.

    The thief's bite wounds were treated at a hospital before he was taken to Clara County Jail in San Jose and "booked on suspicion of burglary and possession of burglary tools."

      Were the copper caper's cuts cared for carefully and consistently according to California's completely confining code for clinical care?

      No the sad part is he probably had better care than most of us normal working joes. Anyways off topic why would he think to try and rob a construction site that has an immense amount of publicity? Abandoned warehouses are much more discreet

      You do realize you basically just said "if he has got health insurance, he is screwed," don't you?

      Yeah, if he didn't have it. The public would've paid for his stupidity rather than himself. That's logical. Don't want to start. Healthcare war here though, this guy was an idiot. Apple's campus is going to be awesome!

      They prosecute a person who take stuff from an open space so seriously, while at the same time no one cares at all when my friend's house was robbed by using extreme violence to break a window glass! (Among all of the losses, there are a handgun and a gold watch). We waited 4 hours before a police finally drop by. And, he frankly informed us that there is no need to take any fingerprint or footprint, since they FOR SURE will do nothing with them.
