Xbox Thief Busted After Playing Online

Here's one straight out of the stupid-people-doing-stupid-things category. Jeremiah Gilliam, 22, allegedly broke into more than 200 cars and homes in Westchester County, N.Y., stealing dozens of video games, laptops and GPS devices, but wasn't busted until he started playing online with an Xbox system under one of his victim's accounts, according to the NEW YORK POST.

Here's one straight out of the stupid-people-doing-stupid-things category. Jeremiah Gilliam, 22, allegedly broke into more than 200 cars and homes in Westchester County, N.Y., stealing dozens of video games, laptops and GPS devices, but wasn't busted until he started playing online with an Xbox system under one of his victim's accounts, according to the NEW YORK POST.

Once authorities were alerted to the use, they traced the IP address to his grandmother's address.

"On the day of the burglary, the victim used another Xbox and saw his system was already online," Pelham Detective John Hynes said. "At the house, we found Xboxes, PlayStations, GPS units, laptops -- a total of 53 items, including stolen credit cards."
