Damn! Now this has to suck. I’m sure most of us have at one point in time lost something and said you will give a reward for it’s return, but $1 Million for a laptop geeeesh!
Ryan Leslie is going to have to dig deep in his pockets to pay off the $1 million he offered as a reward for his stolen laptop after a jury in a Manhattan federal court sided with the man who found and returned it.
Leslie’s laptop came up missing in 2010 while he was in Germany performing. Desperate to get the laptop back Leslie offered $20,000 initially as a reward for its return, then upped the offer to $1 million.
Armin Augstein found the laptop while walking his dog and turned it over to German police in November 2010. Leslie refused to pay up claiming that the hard drive was corrupted and his intellectual property was lost.
