If you are going to steal that many iPad mini's and be that obvious about it, you deserve to be caught.

I just don't understand the obsession people have over Apple products. Relatively speaking, this was a teeny-tiny heist and not worthy of an FBI investigation; there are far more important crimes in the U.S. than the theft of mini replicas of a tablet with limited use. Besides, chances were, these "minis" would have wound up on the black market anyway.or Craigslist. Personally, I think the thieves did this country (and, the World for that matter) a great patriotic service and they should not be penalized for it.

I guess they didn't really steal it...just borrowed it for some few days till the FBI figured it out.
Richardson literally took the saying, "When you want to steal, just take it, don't steal"
