The theft series, which lasted at least a month starting Dec. 5, targeted FedEx trucks parked near Apple stores in the Marina District, Stonestown Galleria Mall and downtown San Francisco, police spokesman Sgt. Daryl Fong said.
A white Chevrolet Astro van seen near the stores at the time of the thefts tipped off police, Fong said.
On Jan. 11, police pulled over the suspected getaway van and found Apple products that had been stolen from a FedEx truck earlier in the day.
Four men were taken into custody and booked on multiple counts of burglary and stolen property. The suspects are Jose Reyes, 52, Victor Morales, 45, and Angel Erazo, 55, from Los Angeles, and Eduardo Alvarez, 43, from Las Vegas.
More of Apple’s stolen merchandise lifted during a Jan. 10 heist was recovered with assistance from US Postal inspectors, police said.
Police are currently investigating whether the suspects are responsible for more thefts in the Bay Area.
