    So i was perusing videos on myspace yesterday and came across a vid of a soldier in Iraq acting like a ninja w/ a bo-staff (off-duty, in barracks). it was fairly humorous but some asshat makes the comment that he wished the soldier would get "hit by an RPG for his lack of bo-staff skills." so i promptly went to his video page, found a vid of a monster truck rally and proceeded to, uh...encourage him to be a better person ;)

    so, onto the meat of the story. i check myspace today and i have a new message (very rare for me as my account is private and i rarely use it). guess who! it's the asshat that made the comment and this is what he wrote:
    well....of course i check out his profile to see who i'm dealing with, expecting it to be some tween with typing turrets but to my delight, his basic profile gives me his birthdate, wedding date, wife's name kids name and his city of residence. so i dig further (remember, this is a PUBLIC profile) and start checking out his pics. well, well, well...what do i see but a folder named "Herb Time" with about 20 pics of his indoor grow op including pics of him and his wife holding the product and smiling! holy crap....eureka!
    but wait, it gets better......i then find a folder named, VW, and guess what it has in it...yup, pics of his new car complete with a close-up of his license plate!
    so i'm thinking....this is just too easy when i find a pic of his kid sitting in the car in front of his house which is also in perfect view of his house number. not only that but the windows on the garage match perfectly with the windows in the grow-op pics!
    so, being the diligent occifer that i am, i call the narcotics division of the anderson PD and have a chat with one of their detectives. i explain who i am and proceed to tell him this whole story. we both have a good laugh and i sent him an email with screenshots of all of the pics just in case this dude gets a clue in the next day or so and deletes the pics. i'll find out tomorrow what happened but it won't take much work in order to have enough for a search warrant.
    i've got a nice reply all typed up for this tool as soon as i hear from anderson pd as to the status of the case :D
    moral of the story: If you're going to make threats online, make sure you read the person's public profile and remove the pics of your weed op from your public photo album :rofl: :rofl:

    here's a pic of the screenshot i made of the "herb time". i'm not posting the one of them holding the product up to their faces just yet...i'll save that for after i hear back from the PD :D

    and of course, if you're gonna put your grow-op out there for everyone to see, might as well put your license plate out there too! :rofl:

    nah, this guy is 100% honky; besides, you're smart enough not to get caught ;)

    edit: he's online right now according to myspace....it's so tempting to just reply to his message with nothing but his home address.....but i don't want to tip him off. crap that would be funny though.

    go to switch board, type in address, get phone number, message him with nothing but his phone number.

    Not to much of a tip off

    I don't know about that. I am seriously thinking about building a water cannon to douse the Olympic torch as it passes thru SF.

    Of course, I am planning to go stealth (and on a bike). It might be a senseless gesture, but no reason to go to jail.

    Nice.

    What a complete tool. He gives weed growers AND hackers a bad name.

    Note: You don't have to make screen shots. Right click and "Save As.." on each of the pics as you view them.

    i know, i did both. the screenshots are in case this goes to court to prove that it came from a PUBLIC site to dispell any 4th/14th ammendment violations. i've made a few buy/busts from myspace with local dealers and i always have to screenshot the buy conversation to prove conspiracy in court.

    nope VB...this was like one of those "cry for help" situations. :D at least with my gangs/dealers here locally they're smart enough to set their profile to private which makes me have to work a little on my psuedo persona to make the deal.
    maybe i should send him a sympathy card in the mail :think:

    So manimal, this guy is pretty much screwed, right? I mean, no matter what happens between you and him online, the cops are going to pay him a visit? Just wondering what happens from here.

    yeah, even if the pics are old and he doesn't have the business anymore he's, at the very least, getting a "knock and talk" from the vice unit ( at least that's how we do business here). they have a lot of evidence to go off of if he denies having the operation considering they can ID him in the pics with the weed. even if criminal charges don't come out of this he'll still get the message and, of course, my reply to his initial message will be very detailed and then i'll try and have his myspace shut down for making threats.

    i hope to hear back from them this week. i don't know the demographics of anderson so i don't know how long it'll take them to get on this. i know that if i got a tip like this i'd be all over it ASAP. if it were just a dime bag or something i would have just verbally raped him but heck, this is a decent sized in-home grow op.
    so yes, he's screwed either way.
