A burglar who spent about five hours on a store’s computer after breaking into the business gave police all the clues they needed to track him down. Investigators said the 17-year-old logged into his MySpace account while at Bella Office Furniture and that made it easy for them to find him. He also spent time looking at pornography and trying to sell stolen items, all while using the business’ computer.

The real tragedy? He’s still on MySpace.

Which reminds me of “Viewing American class divisions through Facebook and MySpace .”
I was going to include one of the many Myspace mugshot photos from Flickr where people are trying to get back into their accounts, but decided against it.
