View Full Version : Had my laptop stolen / Boston police

I'm a recent victim of a laptop & ipod theft, happened during a new years eve party.
I reported to the Bosto Police and the cop told me to post the laptop & police repot information on the database on their homepage-http://www.cityofboston.gov/police/
look for the guy with the bag -http://www.juststolen.net/

This is an amazing idea and I found quite a few news stories about this nationwide database for police to ID owners of laptops & anything. Take a look when you have a few.

Morning Littlebill,

Sorry to here you got ripped, but thanks for the info.

I will freely admit to being unreasonably intolerant of thieves ... I've got no use for them. :mad:

May a 210 grain hollow point find the bugger's head just about the same time you do!

Good luck with the recovery efforts - sad to think it may have been a someone you knew, even casually, at that party. I'm sure you will take all the precautions to alert your credit card companies and banks about the potential for ID problems. Hopefully, you have some insurance to help cover this - or more likely, have checked about reporting it against the insurance of the person or company where the theft occurred.

Wouldn't hurt to check recent listings on ebay....
