I would love to know what company sells all this electronic equipment for a mere $485. I'm not so concerned about the fool that has it delivered via FedEx and then has it left in the 'common area' for anyone to take. Someone removed an unattended FedEx package containing two Dell Latitude D630 Core 2 Duo laptop computers, Sony earbud headphones, a DataTraveler 32GB flash drive and an Ultra lanyard from the common area lobby of a building in the 800 block of Washinton Blvd.Estimated Loss $485

I know people will always be foolish enough to leave their purse dangling on a chair at a restaurant so their wallet gets lifted from it but I would think people would be smart enough not to write down their PIN anywhere near their debit card so they lose $4500 from their checking account along with the wallet. That is just dumb.
