Smile, you’re on Bandit Camera

Finally, a way to justify that webcam you’ve been wanting:

Woot fan captures burglary on webcam. It seems that Joshua “Chowda” Chiarini set up his webcam to participate in Woot TV, the unofficial (but appreciated) nightly webcast produced by and for Woot fans. The next day, he came home to his apartment to find a lot of his gadgets and whatnot missing. He consulted Woot TV’s archived footage from his webcam to find that an unknown woman had burglarized his apartment. The thief was arrested the next day and almost all of the items were recovered. And just think: if Chowda wasn’t a Woot fan, his stuff would still be missing and a burglar would still be prowling Providence.

As for the burglar, I’d be happy to see her tied inside a large bag of crap. And not the good kind, either.
