150 phones at, lets say conservatively, an average of $250, so that's $37500 plus $30,000 cash = quite a nice score.

With that kind of value on site you'd think they would have an alarm system or maybe a security guard there at night. Or at least a decent safe for the cash.

Can you buy insurance for this kind of risk here? If so, maybe they have discovered insurance fraud. $30k in cash is a bit suspicious in itself...

I notice the burglar isn't wearing gloves. Hasn't he heard of fingerprints?
