Computer leads police to its thieves

28th December 2010, Comments 0 comments


Two men from the city of Almere were arrested by the police when the computer they stole revealed their location.

The computer is equipped with track&trace software which sends information about its location via the internet as soon as it is switched on. And the computer's built-in web cam automatically video-taped the two thieves as they were sitting at the computer. The Almere police say the two thieves were completely taken by surprise when the officers showed up on their doorstep.
