Burglary At Microsoft Research Center, Only iPads Taken [Report]

Okay, here's a weird yet funny little report. According to a report, earlier this week, Microsoft got in touch with California Police Department reporting a burglary that had taken place at Microsoft's Mountain View campus but there's a twist..

The thieves broke into 3 offices in Building 5 on the campus between December 19 and 26, when most of the employees were gone for the holidays. Here's the funny bit, nothing else but iPad's were stolen!
The Daily Post reports:
“Microsoft reported that two iPad 2s, and two iPad 3s with a combined value of more than $3,000 were taken some time time between Dec. 19 and Dec. 26 on the company’s campus. A police report also said a fifth tablet — described as an iPad4, worth $729 — was taken as well…
…No Microsoft products were reported stolen.”
Police says they've found no evidence of forced entry into the campus or anything such saying it most likely is an inside job. To me it all sounds funny, like come on, there must be new unreleased Microsoft products at the research campus, why only iPads? You gotta be kiddin' me!

Report further states that Microsoft says they have camera's in the campus via which they might get to the core of the burglary soon.

Maybe they are examining the competitor’s product to design one of their own that is worth a cxap?
