Hollywood-style heist staged in South Brunswick

Police are investigating a Hollywood-style robbery that took place at the Best Buy in South Brunswick.

Police say thieves climbed up a gas pipe on the side of the building and cut two 3-foot by 3-foot holes in the roof Tuesday night. The brazen thieves then rappelled into the store, evading motion sensors and security cameras. Police say the intruders never touched the ground.

Authorities say $26,000 worth of laptop computers were stolen.
