Apple Thefts in New York Outpace Rise in Overall Crime

Thefts of Apple Inc. products in New York City increased more since last year than crime overall, according to the police department.

The Cupertino, California-based company’s products were stolen in a total of 11,447 incidents between Jan. 1 and Sept. 23, an increase of 40 percent over the same period a year earlier, the NYPD said in a statement yesterday. That compares with a 4 percent rise in the same period for the total number of index crimes -- the seven major crimes, including murder, rape and robbery.
