Well I have been digging all day and I think I may have the solution. I have been experimenting with packet sniffing on my own computer and I think if I put a laptop with a wireless card on the victim's network and run Wireshark I may be able to see what sites he's going to, then I can subpoena the records of any site that might have user data, like Yahoo mail or facebook, and get the user ID from the IP logs. It is a long shot... I don't believe the machine is nearby, the router logs show it accessing sites while I am speaking with the victims. I am pretty sure what house it is in, but pretty sure don't cut it in this line of work, I have to be able to convince a judge. Thanks OldPhil, for the kudos. My wife hates that I carry this stuff home but I can't abide some d-bag making off with these people's stuff. I want to catch 'em red handed.
