The police blotter at the University of Texas at Austin reports a recent case that should be of interest to everyone.
A student reported that her Apple iPad, Tom Tom, several credit cards, personal identification, purse and a musical instrument were stolen.
After calling the police, she quickly led officers right to the thieves, who were arrested. All the items were recovered.
The police credited the cracking of this case to the young woman having taken the time to install tracking software onto her computer—advice that the UT compared to “lock your doors when you leave.”
