Burglar steals $16K worth of laptops from Vice office

A bandit broke into the Williamsburg office of hipster magazine company Vice sometime during the evening of July 14, and made off with 11 laptops worth over $16,000, according to a report.

The thief entered the building at S. Second Street and Kent Avenue through a second-story window that was left open overnight, police said.

Staffers realized they had been ripped off the next morning when they discovered the MacBooks had vanished and some of the office’s furniture had been disturbed, cops said.

Vice is not the only trendy business in the area a looter has hit-up for laptops. In September last year, a burglar broke into the offices of hipster crowdfunding company Kickstarter and absconded with three Apple laptops and an iPhone, according to a report at the time.
