Camera on stolen laptop helps owner catch thieves

A tech-savvy White Plains woman whose apartment was robbed solved the crime herself after she was able to log on to her stolen laptop, photograph one of the suspects with it and get photos of another, police said.

At that point, police said, the victim signed onto another computer and used the “Back to My Mac” program to determine that her stolen MacIntosh laptop indeed was signed onto the Web and that someone was using it to shop online. She then activated the stolen computer’s camera, allowing her to “see” what was in front of the laptop.

    Was the robber caught? I am wondering if the video captured by the owner could be used against the robber.
