During only its first week of business after its Dec. 27 grand opening, the Simply Mac store at Kimball Junction was burglarized by an unknown suspect last Wednesday night, with roughly $5,000 worth of merchandise stolen.

Summit County Sheriff's Dispatch received a call from an employee at Simply Mac on Thursday morning that glass from the front door had been broken out. Merchandise including several iPads, a desktop computer, a Macbook laptop and Macbook Pro batteries was found stolen, according to Summit County Sheriff's Capt. Justin Martinez.

Evidence was collected at the scene and video surveillance was given to the Sheriff's Office by the store. There are no suspects at this time and the case is under investigation.

Oakley School vandalism

On Thursday night, two male suspects pulled up to the Oakley School in a vehicle and threw rocks through two glass doors of the building. According to Martinez, one male was a juvenile while the other, Nicholas Lukens, 18, of Bellevue, Wash., was arrested on a third-degree criminal mischief felony charge. The juvenile was taken to a juvenile detention center.

After a report about the incident came in to dispatch, an attempt to locate the two was distributed. The males' vehicle was stopped in Park City by the Park City Police Department, during which the two admitted to committing the act.

Martinez said one of the rocks thrown went through not only the main front door but also shattered the glass of another door behind it.
