Police in Michigan said a stolen laptop's owner used theft-protection software to provide them with the thief's name, picture and location.
Ann Arbor police said Logan Chadde, 21, and his roommate returned home from a night out about 2:45 a.m. Sunday and discovered items, including baseball hats, video games, checks, office equipment and a backpack with a laptop computer, had been stolen from their rooms, AnnArbor.com reported Tuesday.
Police Lt. Renee Bush said the laptop's anti-theft software took a picture of the thief when he turned it on and sent it to a Web site along with a screen shot of what the thief was doing and the stolen item's location. The screen shot contained a picture of the thief's Facebook page, giving investigators his full name.
Police said they knew the 19-year-old suspect from a previous investigation and arrested him. They said his name would not be released until he is arraigned.
