Another dumb criminal tried to steal something from another security conference.
At last week's, International Security Conference in Las Vegas, two suspects gained entry to the show with bogus credentials. While one suspect distracted staff at the Advanced Technology Video booth, the second suspect -- the one in the black Chargers shirt -- lifted the iPad. The video security system caught the whole act.
"On the first day of the show, we noticed that our demo iPad went missing," said Duncan Havlin, vice president of sales and marketing for ATV. "None of my staff had the device so we reviewed the video recording of the booth and watched the entire episode unfold. I was amazed at how foolish this guy was, stealing at a video security expo!"
Thanks to what Las Vegas police called "outstanding video," the iPad was recovered and the suspect was arrested over the weekend. He was charged with Grand Larceny for the theft and Burglary for forging his credentials to gain entry. Charges were not filed against the other suspect -- the one in the green Chargers shirt -- who claimed he had nothing to do with the crime. The video seems to back up his story.
