Stolen Motorola Droid

You knew this was going to end badly. Kid breaks into home. Kid steals Motorola Droid. Kid takes pictures of himself with the Droid. Droid uploads pictures. Kid caught. It's a cautionary tale.

Actually, it was a pretty scary situation for the homeowner, who got some of his stuff back thanks to the Android backup and security app Lookout.

Moral of the story: You can't always prevent your stuff from being stolen, but it's good to have backups in place, just in case.

Who leaves the house w/o their cell phone?

It doesn't appear they left without them, but they were sleeping while the burglary took place.
