Over in the UK, there's a story about a home burglar, who stole a laptop among other things, and then used the fact that the latpop was logged into a Facebook account to taunt the victims via one family member's own Facebook account, noting that he was happy with his take (especially the laptop and a Nintendo DS) and that he'd left the TV because it was "rubbish," before noting that he was off to the pawn shop (he wrote "porn shop" but he probably meant the former). He then signed it, "regards, your nighttime burglar." Of course, it makes you wonder if this only makes him easier to catch, as now police have an IP address to look up as well...
