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.

Naked stranger on toilet asks to ‘finish business’ before arrest

Lisa Bess could not figure out why the front door to her home on West Silver Springs Boulevard was locked and the key was missing on Tuesday afternoon. She couldn’t figure out why her bathroom door was locked and water was running. She called the police.

When Ocala police officers kicked open the door to her bathroom at about 5 p.m., she had her answer: A man had found the extra key outside, let himself in, picked out a new outfit of her clothes to wear and took a long hot shower. They found him sitting naked on the bathroom toilet.

“There was still a stench of my body lotion; actually, water was still draining from the bathtub,” Bess said. “And he was refusing to get off the toilet until he finished doing his business.”

Man meets wife in brothel

Ummmm … if you look up “awkward” in a dictionary, this should be listed:

A Polish man got the shock of his life when he visited a brothel and spotted his wife among the establishment’s employees. Polish tabloid Super Express said the woman had been making some extra money on the side while telling her husband she worked at a store in a nearby town.

“I was dumfounded. I thought I was dreaming,” the husband told the newspaper Wednesday.

Needless to say, the couple, married for 14 years, are now divorcing.

Bank manager gives woman loans for sex


A German bank manager gave loans to a woman for sex and then embezzled thousands of euros to buy the silence of her relatives, authorities said on Thursday.  When the man realized he could not offer the jobless woman a loan because of her poor credit history, he offered to lend her the money personally in return for sexual favors, said a spokesman for a court in the southern town of Tuebingen.  The 31-year-old then stole the money from the bank. The pair continued their arrangement for the next three years.

In total, the man diverted some 520,000 euros ($760,000) from clients’ accounts, of which he gave about 70,000 euros to the woman, and kept 40,000 euros for himself.  The biggest chunk of the cash went to her relatives who were blackmailing the bank manager, a married man with children. The manager had himself told her cousin about the sex deal.  “As incredible as it sounds, that’s what he told us,” the Tuebingen court spokesman said. “The cousin was suspicious and she called him to ask how the woman had got a loan.”

The court said bank officials uncovered the ruse after probing irregularities linked to the man’s handling of other loans. The court gave the man, who confessed, a jail sentence of three years and nine months.
