22 year-old Bronx resident Jeremiah Gilliam must have thought he was pretty smart after allegedly breaking into over two hundred cars and several homes to steal video game consoles, games and other pricey items.
Thing is, Jeremiah Gilliam is not smart.
Having stolen an Xbox 360 during one of his burglaries, Gilliam returned home, plugged the console in and started playing. On Xbox Live.
Around at a friend's house, the boy whose console had been stolen saw that his gamertag was online, and called his parents. Who called the cops. Who called Microsoft. Who traced the IP address to Gilliam's grandmother's house, where police not only found the accused, but "dozens of video games, laptops, and GPS devices".
He's been charged with grand larceny.
