Dumb Criminal Story: Why Stealing At A Security Conference Is A Bad Idea offers a story of a not particularly bright criminal at the International Security Conference at Las Vegas :

ISC West is one of the biggest international security conferences, and practically every inch of the expo floor has a camera or two trained on it.

You would expect that such a setup would make attendees reject the idea of stealing items on display on the stands even before it had half-formed in their minds, but at this year's edition of the conference, one man must have ignored the nature of the conference and the subtle clues by his mind telling him that there are cameras everywhere.

 He simply went for it - it being an unsecured iPad which he slipped into a bag after "discreetly" looking around. Naturally, several cameras caught him red handed.
