Find This Laptop Thief

Josh Kaufman's laptop was stolen, but because he had special security software installed he (and we) can all see pics of the alleged thief. The Oakland police department is too busy to help out, so Josh has put together a blog to post photos sent from the app. [ed note: The name of the software has been removed to appease the jaded cynical masses.]

    Excerpt from the blog:

    Update: (May 31, 8:37 PM PST) ARRESTED! An Oakland police officer just called me to let me know that they arrested the guy in my photos! BOOYA! The police used my evidence (email which pointed to a cab service) that he was a driver and tricked him into picking them up. Nice work OPD!  Update: (May 31, 7:38 PM PST) Thanks to the power of the Internet, I have the attention of the Oakland Police, who are tracking this guy down RIGHT NOW!
