You'd think a facility belonging to a private contractor working for the U.S. Special Operations Command would be well-secured, but seven thieves managed to park two semitrailer trucks next to it and spend nine hours loading them up with laptops.

The theft occurred at the iGov facility in Tampa, Florida and the thieves got away with thousands of Panasonic Toughbook laptops—valued at more than $3,000 each—as well as other equipment. Their entire heist was apparently caught on security footage, but there is no word as to why no one managed to catch them during the nine hour event. [Tampa Bay]
