    Three masked men allegedly entered an Apple store inside a San Mateo mall Thursday night and made off with about 40 items, police said.

    The incident happened around 9 p.m. at the store, located at the Hillsdale Shopping Center, police said.

    After taking the items, the trio fled in a vehicle described as a white four-door sedan, witnesses told police.

    Officers were soon able to catch up with the suspect vehicle on northbound U.S. Highway 101 in Brisbane. Officers then began pursuing the vehicle but when it reached Interstate Highway 80 on the Bay Bridge, officers lost sight of it.

    Police are continuing to investigate the theft and anyone with information is being asked to contact San Mateo police at (650) 522-7700.
