Investigators are getting closer to solving a high-profile break-in at a Colorado Springs Apple Store.
Crooks drove a stolen car through the storefront windows at the Apple Store off Briargate Parkway and stole thousands of dollars worth of merchandise. For a couple of weeks, there were no arrests.
Then on May 23, authorities say 18-year-old Jamy Cham was caught red-handed when he was found trying to escape a burglary scene through the ceiling.
It was the second store he and three accomplices had allegedly broken into that night. Before that, investigators say the group broke into American Coin, stole several boxes of merchandise and left thousands of dollars in damage.
A week later, investigators executed a search warrant on a storage unit in Aurora, where they found almost $130,000 worth of stolen merchandise--including $28,000 in products stolen from the Springs Apple Store.
Though all members of the group were charged in a string of Denver-area burglaries, only Cham has been connected to the Springs Apple Store break-in. Police are still searching for two other suspects connected to that crime.
Cham is in custody on a $200,000 cash bond. He is in court Friday in Jefferson County.
