$54K for a Lost Blackberry? Read the Suspicious Police Report Filed by DNC Organizers

Democratic National Convention organizers claim they lost approximately half a million dollars worth of electronic gadgets during last year’s convention in Charlotte, N.C., ABC News reports.

“Organizers of the Charlotte, N.C., convention have filed an eyebrow-raising police report for lost and stolen electronics, some of which they have valued at as much as 62 times the listed market prices,” the report adds.

The value of an allegedly stolen 13-inch MacBook? $75,537. An iPhone? $30,503. A Blackberry? $54,250.

“Other items reported to have gone missing at the convention included two iPads worth around $15,000 each, laptops listed at $40,000, $34,000 and $25,000 each, and other miscellaneous items worth far more than their list price,” ABC News adds.

“The report claims that 40 items were reported lost and one item – the most highly valued one, the $75,000 MacBook Pro – was stolen,” the report adds.

All in all, roughly $465,000 worth of electronic equipment has been reported as stolen or missing. That's an average of $11,344 per item.

The police report was filed in May (nearly eight months after the alleged thefts occurred) by Kenneth Hardy, deputy in-house counsel for the Democratic National Convention Committee.
