Woman tracks down her stolen laptop

The Journal News has it that the unnamed woman got a call from a friend on Tuesday asking her if she was online; she wasn’t, but her stolen computer was. So the victim signed onto another computer and used the "Back to My Mac" program to confirm that it was in fact her stolen laptop being used to surf the Web.

She was then able to use the stolen computer's camera to photograph the suspects, two Bronx residents in their ‘20s. She didn’t recognize the men, but her roommate did – they had attended a party at the apartment a few weeks before the burglary. White Plains police later arrested the duo, recovering most the stolen goods and generating another useful plot device for Law & Order screenwriters.
