If you've never heard of Post Secret, you've been living under a rock.
I knew a guy who used to steal reagents from lab back in high school. It would be stuff like magnesium strips so he could ignite home-made thermite- nothing big. I myself have taken something from the lab before, but by accident. It was one of the few days I was wearing a lab coat and I had taken a few of the disposable Pastuer glass pipettes in back home with me in one of the pockets. Thankfully they didn't break when I bunched it up in the bottom of my bag, which is some kind of miracle.
I actually want to buy a series of erlenmeyers diminishing in size down to a 25 mL one and set them up on a shelf at home matryoshka style. It's still not illegal to own erlenmeyers in Georgia, though you need a permit to buy them in Texas (everything is more ridiculous in Texas).
