TAMPA — They came with rappel lines, a power saw and wire cutters.

Had they only packed a lunch, the thieves who lifted $7.4 million in military laptops from an east Hillsborough warehouse last March might have savored success.

But there sat Rolando Coca, staring into a video camera at a McDonald's drive-thru, midway through the biggest cargo heist in Hillsborough history.

"That's really one of the things that broke the case for us," Hillsborough Sheriff David Gee said Wednesday.
