Find Your Burglar… On eBay

from the becoming-too-common dept

This certainly isn’t the first time we’ve heard stories like this, but it looks like a woman who was burgled of a few items, including a laptop and an iPod, quickly went on eBay and tracked down the stolen goods. The goods were traced back to a sports memorabilia dealer, who claimed he bought the goods from someone else. He apparently helped provide enough info that the police tracked down the crook. The police were apparently so thankful for the woman’s help in finding the guy that, along with her returned stuff, they’re sending her a $100 gift certificate to an electronics store.
