[TIPS] thief tracked down via internet

http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=89318806

My wife, while stuck in traffic, heard this story on NPR. Here's the skinny from the site:

"A thief who stole an X-Box game player in Philadelphia got more than he bargained for when the rightful owner blogged about the theft. Gamers tracked the thief through the Internet and spammed him into submission. The X-Box was anonymously returned."

Listen to the full story at that link. Pretty neat.
