Dave Moreland's Bozo Criminal of the Day - The world famous daily report on dumb crimes

May 14, 2008

Bozo criminal for today from White Plains, New York, is yet another example of a bozo foiled by modern technology. Bozo Ian Fowler broke into an apartment and stole a number of items, including an Apple notebook computer. Our bozo was relaxing at his house, surfing the internet on the stolen laptop when the computer started acting strange. Using a remote control feature included on Macs the owner had logged on to her stolen computer and was controlling it remotely. She then told the computer to take a picture of our bozo, using its onboard camera. Before he knew what was going on, the picture was taken and sent to the remote computer. And, wouldn’t you know it, the victim recognized our bozo as an acquaintance who had attended a party at her apartment a few weeks ago. Busted!
