Absolute Recovers Laptop from Un-Neighborly Thief

By: Absolute Team | 1/29/2009

An open apartment window was just the invitation a thief needed to steal a laptop off the desk of an Alabama LoJack for Laptops customer. Fortunately for the laptop's owner, the stolen computer began checking in with the Absolute Monitoring System just weeks later, allowing the Absolute Recovery Team to trace its whereabouts.

Absolute's tracking tools revealed interesting information - namely that the laptop was called from the same apartment that it had been stolen from. After working with the Absolute Recovery Team to obtain a search warrant for the identified locale, police paid a visit to the un-neighborly suspect.

The search proved to be productive, as not only did police recover the stolen laptop, but also confiscated a quantity of drugs. Related charges are pending. In the meantime, the laptop has been returned to another satisfied LoJack for Laptops customer.
