Thief Steals Woman’s Smart TV, Gets Caught Watching Netflix
20-year-old Bobby Alexander broke into a woman's house in Mariposa, California stealing a bunch of electronics, including her 65-inch smart TV. At first the cops didn't have any leads, three days later, the woman realized someone was watching movies on her Netflix account.
She gave her account information to the police, they called Netflix, and Netflix tracked the guy's I.P. address to a house nearby. When cops searched the house, they didn't find the stolen electronics, but the people who lived there said they let one of their neighbors use their Wi-Fi.
The cops got a warrant, searched Bobby's place, and found the stolen stuff. He wasn't there at the time, but he turned himself in a few hours later. He's facing burglary charges, and being held on $75,000 bail.
