YouTube catches thief

A man who stole a laptop at a computer shop in New Zealand had the video footage put up on popular video site, YouTube for him later to be caught.

Google’s YouTube was the direct result of the guy being identified as 50-year-old, Dawson Anthony Bliss. Oh yeah, and he did the robbery in broad daylight, that was probably a big mistake too. I would also be surpised to find a computer store that didn’t have decent video surveillance like this computer shop did.

He was convicted in court yesterday for theft; he was ordered to pay NZ$1990 in reperation and had to pay $2000 in fines.

This news has made headlines internationally.
