    The only thing I find hard to bemieve is that the floor had pressure sensitive sensors. I own a security company I wouldnbe very surprised if this information is actually accurate. Also there are no such things as laser detectors or any kind of visible beam detectors, pure movie fiction.

    As far as the suction cups, it's adds a little spy movie taste to the story but there are
    plenty of ways to remove the cut out without them. Holes are cut like this in roofs for HVAC all the time. Most of the time you just screw a piece of wood acroos the piece to be removed before you finish the cut. The wood should be slightly longer than the length of the hole or can be 4 smaller pieces at each side. I can see using the suction cups as they are cheap and readily available. Glass companies, window cleaners and other trades all use them.

    There was i very similar case of thefts in california back in 90s , iv seen it on tv couple of months ago. Makes me think if someone took a page out of that guys book. That guy in 90's stole almost 1 million worth of computers and parts.

    Default Modest?
    In this crappy economy $26,000 is hardly a modest amount.
    Very impressive theft and very dissaponted with the security measures of a large company like best buy they should know better.

    I wonder how they knew their exact position in relation to the mac books - they'd have to directly above them?

    Maybe used the iphone in the store during the day to fix a position - now that would be ironic
