The facelessness of corporate culture apparently led to a burglary in San Francisco’s Financial District on Thursday.
At about noon, police said, a crook waltzed unnoticed into an office on the 100 block of Second Street, sat at a desk, talked on the phone, then made off with an iPad.
The iPad’s owner called police and reported that he had momentarily left his desk when the theft occurred.
“A coworker of the victim stated she was working at her desk when she saw an unknown suspect sit at the victim’s desk and begin to talk on the phone,” police at Southern Station said.
The coworker said she was busy and returned to her work. She saw the suspect walk away, but apparently did not think to confront the guy or call security.
Luckily, police said, the incident was captured on video surveillance, however, it was not immediately clear if anyone was arrested at this time.
