Police are looking for three suspects who used bear spray to rob the Apple Store at a Vancouver mall.

About 40 people were in the store at the Oakridge Mall around 7 p.m. Monday when three men burst in and discharged the spray before making off with an unknown quantity of Apple devices, CTV reports.

Police were unable to track down the suspects but did find some of the stolen items discarded by the thieves on their way out.

Five people were treated at the scene for exposure to the bear spray.
