Nabbed!

Nancy was kind enough to send word of this supremely satisfying story:

A clever Mac user who had her laptop stolen led the police to the alleged burglars using Back to My Mac. Three roommates in White Plains, N.Y., had about $5,000 worth of computer and entertainment equipment stolen 27-Apr-08. Then this last Tuesday, one victim who works at an Apple Store, Kait Duplaga, received a text message from a friend, who, spotting her on iChat, thought she’d recovered her computer.

She said no, and used Back to My Mac’s remote screen sharing feature to monitor her laptop’s built-in iSight camera to grab a photo of one of the alleged thieves. She then used remote file sharing to find pictures of the other stored on the laptop. The two men charged in the burglary were arrested with the equipment in their apartment, and are reportedly friends of a friend of the roommates who had their stuff stolen.

Godalmighty, but I hate a friggin’ thief about as bad as I hate anything in this world. Good on ya, Kait.
