World Of WarCraft leads to Drug Dealer's arrest
« on: January 04, 2010, 05:45:03 PM »


Story listed here for your perusal.

For you lazy bastiges, I'll cut to the chase:

Police tap Blizzard to help catch a drug dealer that skipped the country

World of Warcraft is among the most popular online pastimes today, boasting more than 14 million players in dozens of countries ?? including Canada. But this is the Internet, and Blizzard is in California. Roberson??s subpoena was nothing more than a politely worded request, considering the limits of his law enforcement jurisdiction and the ambiguity of the online world.

??They don??t have to respond to us, and I was under the assumption that they wouldn??t,? said Roberson. ??It had been three or four months since I had sent the subpoena. I just put it in the back of my mind and went on to do other things. Then I finally got a response from them. They sent me a package of information. They were very cooperative. It was nice that they were that willing to provide information.?

Blizzard did more than cooperate. It gave Roberson everything he needed to track down Hightower, including his IP address, his account information and history, his billing address, and even his online screen name and preferred server. From there it was a simple matter to zero in on the suspect??s location.

??I did a search off the IP??address to locate him,? said Roberson. ??I got a longitude and latitude. Then I went to Google Earth. It works wonders. It uses longitude and latitude. Boom! I had an address. I was not able to go streetside at the location, but I had him.?

I got a fist full of bad ideas!
