Customers queue outside an Apple store in Paris on March 16, 2012. Armed robbers broke into the store on New Year's Eve and made off with about one million euros ($1.3 million) in merchandise, police said.

The four armed men broke into the shop behind the Palais Garnier Opera around 9:00 pm on Monday, about three hours after it closed.

They overpowered an employee, leaving him lightly injured, and loaded the stolen goods into a truck parked near the store.

Thousands of police were deployed on the streets of Paris at the time, but were focused on maintaining security among crowds gathered on the Champs Elysees for traditional New Year's Eve festivities.
