This is a question I witnessed a crime

Freddy Woo writes, "A group of us once staggered home so insensible with drink that we failed to notice someone being killed and buried in a shallow grave not more than 50 yards away. A crime unsolved to this day."

Have you witnessed a crime and done bugger all about it? Or are you a have-a-go hero?
Whatever. Tell us about it...

Pointless Break-in
A few years ago, I used to live in a scummy little council bedsit (yes, I know) which was next door to the largest concentrated area of flats in the town. I could tell you many stories of the crime which happened in that area.

The first one happened to an ex-workmate of mine, who moved into the flat downstairs from mine before I left.

Just before he moved out, he'd somehow managed to get some random girl pregnant and decided to move up north with her, he went out on the piss with myself and a few others. I was working the next day, so I decided to go home and sleep off the Guinness.

The next morning, I checked my phone and I had received a text from said friend saying "I've lost my laptop." As it transpired, he'd managed to get home the previous evening and got inside the flat, turned on his laptop and promptly fell asleep. When he awoke from his slumber, he noticed that the laptop was missing, but the thief had left the power adapter.

I suggested that he go around all the neighbours and ask who wanted to buy it from him. One guy did offer to take it off his hands, so my friend called the local police. When he explained the situation, they came up within a few minutes and arrested him.

Who steals a laptop from a drunk man, and forgets the power adapter? Then when offered an adapter the next day, offers to buy it?

He got his laptop back and a day off work (with expenses) for going to court.

*pop*, there goes the b3ta cherry.
