REWARD: FABULOUS DRUG STASH!, the professional-looking poster reads. It’s no surprise to learn that it came from a full-service ad-design firm, but that doesn’t lessen the WTF impact. It turns out Kurt Shore is really desperate to recover his stolen laptop computer.
As Shore was leaving his Philadelphia ad agency’s office one night last month, an employee somehow tripped the alarm, reports Michael Smerconish at the Philadelphia Daily News
. Not wanting the police to pay an unnecessary visit, Shore left his car running and ran back inside to turn off the alarm. A nearby security camera caught him jogging from his car back into the office.
And that tape also shows, in the next 30 seconds, somebody emerging from a nearby vehicle that had just pulled into the camera’s field of view. A person quickly approaches Shore’s car, open’s the driver’s side door, and removes Shore’s briefcase containing his laptop. The thief then returns to his or her vehicle and leaves.
