Stolen iPod on eBay

Police are crediting Karen Todd, a mother of two and U.S. Census Bureau computer programs designer, with they believe is responsible for at least 13 thefts -- simply by checking the eBay online auction site for items stolen from her Bowie home. The break-in was discovered by her husband, Dan, when he returned to their Bowie, Maryland home find the sliding door to their kitchen smashed. Missing were a specially engraved iPod that Karen Todd had given her husband for Christmas, and her Apple iBook laptop computer. "I was mostly upset about the iPod because it had been a gift," she said. "I was like, 'That's mine! That's mine!' I was just floored." Todd recognized her husband's iPod by its custom inscription.

    Great story...but...

    It sucks that they stuck that misinformation at the end of the article. Once she syncs the iPod, the songs will be back on it. No need to buy more.
