Update: Police say they've busted the Macbook thief. Read our story here.
A blog post ago we told you about some ballsy people who were tipping over Smart Cars in various San Francisco neighborhoods. So while we were on the subject of brazen fools, we decided to show you some surveillance of a latte-drinking thief who reportedly stole a computer from a downtown coffee shop.
A local iOS developer is on the hunt for her Macbook which was snatched from the cafe while the victim was in the restroom. The only good part to this is that the victim was able to retrieve the surveillance of the entire theft which has since been posted to YouTube.
The victim has created her own tumblr page dedicated to getting her technology back.
Here's a post:
UPDATE: If you have any more information about the girl in black and white, please reach out to the San Francisco Police Department at (415) 315-2400.
