The central theme of this study is to explore the growth and causes of a relatively new form of "property crime" - the large scale theft of high technology products while the products are in transit from the point of manufacture to the point of market (retail stores, end users). For the purpose of this study, high technology products may be defined as computers, computer monitors, computer hard drives, microchips and other computer peripherals.
