We have heard many hilarious stories of how thieves and robbers have managed to get themselves caught simply because they did not know that they were being recorded, and it looks like that has just happened again over in Tenterden Close, Eastbourne. According to a report from The Argus in the UK, this burglary took place on the 1st of April.
A 19 year old Jay Georgiou and an unidentified man broke into the flat of three men, tied them up, and demanded for drugs and money. However little did they know that prior to them breaking in, the people in the flat were enjoying a game of Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 online with one of their friends who heard everything over the voice chat.
From that, their friend called the police who then identified one of the burglars as Georgiou, who actually answered a call from his probation officer. They managed to arrest him less than two hours after the burglary, although as far as his accomplices were concerned, they were still at large.
Georgiou has since been sentenced to eight years in prison and was ordered to pay £120 in damages. It’s actually interesting to note that despite the concerns people might have over their privacy regarding microphones and cameras, they do come in handy at the oddest times ever!
