They also confirmed that they are offering a $25,000 reward to anyone who can provide information that would lead to the identification, arrest, and conviction of a criminal suspect.

According to a statement provided to Polygon:

This note is to confirm that two Razer Project Valerie laptop prototypes were stolen from the Razer booth at CES. The product was taken from the Razer press room at approximately 4 p.m. on Sunday, January 8, 2017. 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.

If you don't recall, Project Valerie is Razer's three-screen laptop which has folding displays that fit into a laptop. However, it is not known how the laptops were stolen or exactly by whom, so we're still in the dark about the events that led up to the theft.

Most likely, they were stolen while Razer was tearing down their booth and suites and were in boxes when someone stole them since most display devices are bolted down or hidden behind Plexiglas to prevent theft as Razer has done many times before.
