    Phone that costly and belonging to a security personnel will probably be configured in a way it cannot readily be used by another person. A thief may therefore not find a ready buyer and would probably fling same for some riculously low price for someone conversant with sophisticated gadgets to tackle.
    If there is CCTV in the room they will see who stole it.
