“MUNROE FALLS, Ohio — Netflix helped lead detectives to a television stolen during an August break-in.
A couple returned to their home Aug. 28 in the 300 block of Hunter Avenue after a weeklong vacation to find that someone broke in through a glass front door.
Burglars stole speakers, a CD rack, 3-D glasses, an airsoft pellet gun, jewelry valued at $700 and a 55-inch Samsung smart TV with Internet streaming capabilities.
About a month later, someone accessed the couple’s Netflix account that was linked to the stolen TV. Munroe Falls police traced the Internet address used in the log-in to a man living on Inman Street in Akron.”
Netflix and NOT chill, amirite?
Bummer for the burglar, that’s one hell of a haul for a B&E. But you gotta be smarter than the TV man. Pawning that jewelry could have paid for seven years of your own Netflix account. This is right up there with the guy who smoked so much weed he called the cops on himself. Bold prediction? Cops won’t exist in 50 years. We’ll have no need for law enforcement if the devolution of our nation’s criminals continues like this. If you can’t stand the heat, get the hell out of the kitchen fellas. And drop the microwave on your way out.
On a related note, this couple sounds like a couple I need to party with.
