Local gaming company Razer CEO offers $25K reward for information on stolen triple-screen laptop prototypes

In a Facebook post on Monday (Jan 9), local gaming company Razer’s Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Min-Liang Tan announced that two of Razer’s top secret, three screens laptop prototypes, code name Project Valerie had been stolen from the Razer booth during the CES show in Las Vegas.

According to the Tan, the laptops were supposedly stolen from the Razer press room last Sunday (Jan 8) at around 4pm, and he urged members of the public with information to come forward, citing a reward of $25k for ‘original information leading to the identification, arrest and conviction of a criminal suspect’. 

Said the 39-year-old gaming mogul:

“I've just been informed that two of our prototypes were stolen from our booth at CES today.

“We have filed the necessary reports and are currently working with the show management as well as law enforcement to address this issue.

“At Razer, we play hard and we play fair. Our teams worked months on end to conceptualize and develop these units and we pride ourselves in pushing the envelope to deliver the latest and greatest.

“We treat theft/larceny, and if relevant to this case, industrial espionage, very seriously – it is cheating, and cheating doesn’t sit well with us. 

“Penalties for such crimes are grievous and anyone who would do this clearly isn’t very smart.

“If you were at the show and/or if you can provide us any information, please do reach out to us at legal@razerzone.com – all information provided will be kept in the strictest of confidence.

“A $25,000 reward is being offered for original information leading to the identification, arrest and conviction of a criminal suspect.

“Razer, in its sole discretion, will decide who is entitled to a reward and in what amount. Razer may pay only a portion of the maximum reward offered.

“The decision will be based primarily upon law enforcement's evaluation of the value of the information provided. 

“When there are multiple claimants, the reward will be shared in amounts determined by Razer.

“Razer associates are not eligible for the reward. 

“This reward offer is good for one year from the date it is first offered, unless extended by Razer. 

“Information about the theft can be sent to legal@razerzone.com

“Razer will not publicly disclose material that it receives or details about respondents, except to those persons with whom Razer is directly working to resolve this matter or as may be required by law. “
