Catching Thieves By eBay
from the everybody's-doing-it dept
Here’s a story at TechTV about a guy who had the wheels of his car stolen, and then went online to find someone a few miles away selling the exact same wheels on eBay. He told the police, who bid on and won the auction, before placing the seller under arrest. Of course, the guy can’t get his wheels back because they’re evidence – but at least they got the guy who stole them.
