Thief caught on Webcam
« on: May 12, 2008, 12:15:37 AM »
I just found this article at http://www.theage.co...s_cid=rss_technology

Quote
Police have arrested two men and recovered $US5500 ($5800) worth of stolen computers and electronic devices after the owner of one of the purloined laptops was able to connect remotely to her Apple MacBook and photograph the thief.

Kait Duplaga, 19, returned to her New York state home on April 27 to find the unit she shared with two other flat mates had been ransacked.

A bit of luck involved, and some expense, but she got her laptop back as well as other stuff.  Go Kait Go  :Thmbsup:

That's great, but the thread title sounded like the video was available to view.  Darn!  :)
