The suspects reportedly stole Apple products, with the estimated loss to be around 1 million euros, or approximately $1.25 million. The police won't confirm: "It is too early to give an accurate estimation of the damage. An inventory is taking place to determine the exact amount of the damage," a Paris police spokeswoman said.
