Microsoft's Research Campus in Silicon Valley was apparently burglarized during the holidays and Apple iPads were stolen, according to Daily Post via a 9to5mac report.

The report claims that Microsoft reported that two iPad 2s and two iPad 3s with a combined value of $3,000 were taken some time between Dec. 19 and Dec. 26 on the company's campus in Mountain View, California.

That same report also mentioned that a fifth tablet — described as an iPad 4, worth $729 — was taken as well.

Police sergeant Sean Thompson who is investigating the burglary incident said "there are no suspects and no sign of forced entry." Thompson also said "all employees have access to the building through their electronic card keys."

Meanwhile, Microsoft told police that there were video surveillance in the building and they will review who entered and exited the building during the time frame of the theft.

The real kicker in this story though, is the report that no Microsoft products were reported stolen in this unfortunate incident, because it was presumed that the Microsoft office where the incident happened was loaded with the company's latest and greatest products, but a thief decided to steal five Apple iPads instead.
