Microsoft research campus burgled, only iPads stolen

A story leaked online this weekend which will raise many a smile. Apparently Microsoft reported there was a burglary in one of their buildings on the campus in Mountain View, California.

The thieves broke into 3 offices in Building 5 on the campus at the end of December. They had a look around the buildings and decided to only steal the iPad tablets.

The Daily Post reported “Microsoft reported that two iPad 2s, and two iPad 3s with a combined value of more than $3,000 were taken some time time between Dec. 19 and Dec. 26 on the company’s campus. A police report also said a fifth tablet — described as an iPad4, worth $729 — was taken as well…

…No Microsoft products were reported stolen.”

Police say they have no proof of a forced entry, so it may be an ‘inside job'. All employees have access to the building via an electronic key card system.

Microsoft say they have some video surveillance in the building and they will be reviewing it to see who was around at the time of theft.

Kitguru says: Perhaps the Microsoft employees left the iPads in the building as they weren't using them over the holidays and had taken home their Surface tablets?
