Thief Uploads His Pic to Flickr from Stolen iMac

About a week ago (Wednesday) people broke into our building and stole a bunch of iMac computers from a shared workspace/coffee bar a floor above us. There were few leads and as usual nothing was excepted to happen. Vancouver cops don't seem to follow up much in this area due to high property crime and not enough resources. This was until this morning when the so called thief uploaded a picture of himself and his tattoos to Flickr from the one of the stolen iMacs. It was setup to autoupload so patrons of the workspace/coffee bar could share their pictures online. Funnily enough, you get a dialog box that asks you to confirm the upload and the would be criminal clicked YES! Just goes to show you have to computer savvy these days if you want to be part of the underworld. Enjoy the pictures:
