BiteMyApple, the popular online store for Kickstarter-funded Apple accessories, had opened a dedicated holiday boutique at 312 Bowery earlier this month. The store is stocked with all sorts of crowd funded goodies, and more than 80% of the available products are exclusive to the pop-up.

And it was robbed this week.

According to shop owner Chris Johnson, the thief broke into 312 Bowery at 5am on Monday morning. So much for that holiday spirit. Surveillance video shows the perp bust through the glass, swiftly walk through the space, and yank two items.

Check out the video below with the following caption. The vandal is reportedly still at large.

Stolen were 2 items. The iPad Air 2 and Core Wireless Speaker System. Not the best high quality hd camera. The Holiday Popup Shop was setup for crowed founded Entrepreneurs from all over the world. We gave them a place to showcase there products for sale for the holiday and last night our store was robbed. Can you guys in the NYC area please post this video. It would be nice if we can catch this Bitch…
