A thief who broke into a home in Hove, East Sussex and stole, among other things, an iPhone and a laptop, has taunted his victim on Facebook.
The victim, Victoria Richardson, found the comments on Facebook from the burglar the day after the house she shares with her family had been broken into. Aside from the Toshiba laptop and the iPhone, Mrs Richardson also lost a Nintendo DS console and her handbag which contained her purse, cash and debit cards.
As Sky News reports, the burglar accessed his victims Facebook account and began leaving her messages that read, "on my new laptop" and, "listening to music on my new phone feels so good". The burglar also added that the TV had been left behind as it was not good enough and also hinted that some of the rest of the goods might be taken to a pawn shop.
The Brighton Argus reports that the illiterate thief wrote, “i have the laptop , phones ok but a bit scratched itll do tv was rubbish so i left it ,ds was a bonuss now to the porn shop i gooo , thankyou toshiba is my favourate make”.
42-year old Victoria Richardson was also taunted by the burglar who signed off with the words, "Regards your nighttime burglar". She has spoken of the invasion of her privacy as being "doubly painful" and made the following statement to The Brighton Argus, "I felt very spooked." Then added: "It felt like they were rubbing my nose in it. They have been in your physical space, and then they are in your online space."
Mrs Richardson urges others to protect themselves with passwords and to not leave themselves open to similar invasions of privacy.
