Serial burglar Ben Park was finally snared when he targeted a house where owner, Duncan Grisby, was more computer savvy than the average PC user.
As he takes his cap of to get a better look at the room, Park doesn't realise a webcam is silently taking pictures of him and sending them to an external email address.
The police said it was a joy to produce the photographs of Park caught red-handed.
Park stole £4,000-worth of Mr Grisby's possessions. After seeing the damning evidence, he had little choice but to plead guilty.
Park reaches for the camera. He will soon realise that, this time, he's picked the wrong victim.
