Man Busted For Stealing Church Computer After Insistent Searches For Porn

Having problems with that computer you just (allegedly) stole from a church? First of all, shame on you for stealing, second, if you can’t get the laptop to let you search for and view porn, calling the software company that stymied said efforts and asking it to help is going to blow your cover.

KRMG.com says an Oklahoma church employee called in a theft to cops, saying whoever stole a computer from the establishment probably attended the church or was familiar with it, because there were no signs of a break-in.

He was right, but the suspect wasn’t caught while say, Googling during services. A company that had monitoring software on the computer alerted the church that someone kept trying to look up pornography on the missing computer.

But police couldn’t really make a bust until said suspect contacted the software company itself, asking it to take down the monitoring software, ostensibly because he didn’t want anyone watching while he surfed for porn.

Police arrested the man, saying he denied taking the computer despite the fact that it was allegedly found in his home, but that he later confessed.
