How can they load laptops into trucks for 9 hrs and not been seen lol. Wheres the security guards, this was a contract for U.S. military's Special Operations - Virginia-based company iGov was awarded a $450 million contract . Company's contract I expect will be canceled.

Thousands of laptops were stolen from the Florida office of a private contractor for the U.S. military's Special Operations Command.


U.S. Special Operations Command coordinates the activities of elite units from the Army, Navy, Air Force and Marines. A spokeswoman said Tuesday that none of the stolen laptops contained military information or software.
The Virginia-based company iGov was awarded a $450 million contract earlier this year to supply mobile technology services linking special operations troops worldwide. A company executive says iGov is cooperating with authorities and the March 6 break-in at its Tampa facility remains under investigation.

Surveillance cameras caught up to seven people loading the computers into two trucks for nine hours.

This all happened in March so it's not as if the police are working any faster although they have recovered 1911 of the laptops.
