Absolute’s Latest Recovery Leads to $10,000 Bust

By: Absolute Team | 8/27/2010

Absolute pinned down the exact location of this laptop 3 weeks after it was stolen in a home burglary. When met by police, the unauthorized user was quick to hand over the machine, and explained that it was a gift from her boyfriend (touching!). Officers decided to pay him a visit next.

It appears that the boyfriend was more than just a burglar – upon hearing police arrive, he attempted to flush a large quantity of narcotics down the toilet. He was not quite quick enough, however, allowing police to seize this soggy packet – along with another $10,000 worth of drugs, dispersed throughout the house. The boyfriend is facing felony drug charges.

Indictments and criminal complaints are unproven accusations and the accused in all cases are presumed innocent until proven guilty.
