About a month ago, Homaro Cantu, the technical wizard-chef of Moto and Ing, had a laptop stolen from near the front door at Ing. For most it might end there, or with a highly unsatisfying report to police. But not for Cantu. He’s been watching the thief ever since. Using software which allows him to keep tabs on what’s going on on his computer remotely, he managed to identify where the alleged perp was logging on from and soon figured out who he was.
But perps usually not being the brightest sorts, Cantu has also acquired pictures of the perp that the perp took himself on the laptop. Pictures like… the perp smoking what does not appear to be a commercially-made cigarette. Pictures like… the perp’s car in front of his house in Hyde Park/Kenwood. And Cantu being an irrepressible prankster, he published all of this on his Facebook page. And more, like… that the guy’s an online devotee of “hot Latina booty.” You apparently have to be a friend of Cantu’s on Facebook to see the full page with plenty of doofy perp-pics (h/t David Hammond on that), but you can at least see one of the milder pics here.
