A Bronx man who stole a Xbox 360 console and other valuables was later caught soon after the thief logged into the system's online account, the The New York Post reports.Detectives were able to trace the perpetrator's IP address back to his grandmother's home, where they would later find numerous stolen electronic property."On the day of the burglary, the victim used another Xbox and saw his system was already online," Detective John Hynes said. "At the house, we found Xboxes, PlayStations, GPS units, laptops -- a total of 53 items, including stolen credit cards."Jeremiah Gilliam, 22, is being charged with grand larceny.
Source: IGN.comSo did the guy who's stuff got stolen have two 360's that were "friend-ed" and that's how he was able to see that someone was on his stolen 360? Surprised the cops took it seriously when he called and said that some one stole his 360 and were online with it "right now!" lol. Glad the idiot was caught though.

I think what makes consoles attractive is that you turn them on, and they just work. No config, installing shit, or bloatware to deal with.

I think the likelihood of police following up on these leads are increasing, which is great. You have to consider that police departments have officers that would be in the gaming/tech age or have children in the gaming/tech age. I hope KRS-One has a talk with Mr. Gilliam and straightens his life out. ;)
