    HONG KONG -- Thieves snatched two computers from a Hong Kong trade
    fair, a particularly brazen act considering that the victims were
    security companies showing off the latest crime-stopping technology.
    The thieves stole two laptop computers worth $2,500 from the Asia
    Securitex 2004 trade show on Wednesday, police spokeswoman Carrie So
    "If you can't expect good security here, where can you expect it?"  
    exhibitor Shinah Lunty was quoted as saying in the South China Morning
    Post newspaper. Lunty told the newspaper that her mobile phone, worth
    $260, was also stolen.
    Hong Kong police inspector Bob White said he suspected a mainland
    China gang targeted the exhibition because it was seen as a place for
    "easy pickings," the newspaper reported.
    The four-day trade show started Tuesday.
