Man Catches Burglar by Using Skype

Here was my story from today… All too often we hear about crimes being committed with the help of social media. But rarely does it happen that the internet can actually help catch a criminal in the act. But that’s exactly what happened in Nicholasville. Donovan Jefferson was chatting on Skype with his cousin, Connie Evans in Remlap, Alabama. While the two were chatting on Skype, Connie had to leave to pick up her son, promising to return soon. “I just left it connected so I could hear but not see. Shortly after I heard a knock at the door,” says Donovan. That’s when Skyping when from staying in touch, to staying safe. “Immediately I knew she was being robbed,” says Donovan. “I was on my way back home and Donovan called me and told me that someone was breaking in my home, “says Connie. “I was able to see the crime take place right there,” says Donovan. Thanks to Donovan’s quick thinking, he was able to snap a picture using Skype and catch the criminal in the act. The picture proved to be a valuable piece of evidence for police. “Police said with the picture, one of the officers knew the lady immediately,” says Connie. Police even interviewed Donovan about what he saw, all of course, via Skype. Donovan says, “I was just happy that I was online with her.” The criminals got away with a digital camera. They are still on the run. Jessamine County, KY. – All too often we hear about crimes being committed with the help of social media.
