Absolute Recovers Stolen Laptop, Uncovers Bad Boyfriend

By: Absolute Team | 4/22/2009

A recovery tale that Absolute hears much too often -

The Absolute Theft Recovery Team recently tracked a customer's stolen laptop to an Arizona residence, which housed the unauthorized female user that the Team had identified. Police visited the home, looking to recover the laptop and reveal further details of the theft.

The female user answered the door and confirmed that the laptop was is her possession. When confronted with details of the theft, however, the surprised woman alleged that she had never suspected that the laptop was a stolen item as she had received it from a reliable source.

As it turns out, the woman's boyfriend had given her the laptop a few weeks after the theft had occurred - as a Valentines Day present. Nothing says love like stolen property!

The laptop has been returned to its owner, and the less-than-romantic boyfriend remains under investigation.
