X-Box 360 theft suspect busted after online gaming sesh
From tagged to fragged
An alleged X-Box 360 thief was tracked down after he forgot to disable the game console's auto sign-in feature before hopping on the net.
Jeremy Gilliam, 22, from the Bronx in New York City, was arrested after the victim of a theft noticed a gametag he had set up in a recently stolen console had appeared online. The victim told his parents who, in turn, notified the police.
Microsoft assisted in a subsequent investigation that led back to the internet connection for the house of Gilliam's grandmother. Police obtained a warrant and searched the premises where they found stolen games, laptops, and satnavs. Gilliam, who already faces car theft charges, was subsequently charged with burglary offences.
