Crooks pull off $100k ‘Mission: Impossible’-style theft at Best Buy

They reportedly came through a hole in the ceiling, rappelling into the Dunwoody Best Buy like Tom Cruise’s character famously did in “Mission: Impossible.”

Dunwoody police told Channel 2 Action News the burglars made their way to a secure storage area at the store where Apple products were kept and cleaned it out. The theft, which happened June 8, was worth more than $100,000.

No arrests have been made, and the details of the sophisticated heist from the store near Perimeter Mall have investigators wondering if it was related to similar cases in other states, including Texas.

Channel 2 said police are trying to get surveillance footage for the investigation.
