ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) — Open an app. See a flash. Get arrested.
Police in Michigan say a stolen laptop took a picture of the thief and sent it to a security website, leading to his arrest.
The computer's owner, Logan Chadde, installed Orbicule security software before a weekend break-in at his home in Ann Arbor.
Chadde told AnnArbor.com (http://bit.ly/MsdCQs ) on Monday the program captured the thief using Facebook and talking with another person about how he was going to sell the stolen laptop. Chadde sent the information to police, who arrested a 19-year-old man.
Police Lt Renee Bush says officers knew the suspect from an earlier encounter.
Chadde says such cases are frustrating, but "this is one of the few times the police had a lot of information to go off."
