The flagship Apple store on George Street in Sydney’s CBD was evacuated “as a precaution” during lunchtime today as part of an as-yet undisclosed “police operation”.

Police began clearing the three-storey glass-encased retail store on the corner of King and George streets just before 1pm and traffic was diverted around the area, a police spokesperson told Business Insider.

A police sniffer dog was seen entering the building before police gave the all clear for people to re-enter the store around one hour later.

Gizmodo Australia captured part of the scene as it unfolded today.
