I was dribbling with excitement when I opened my Emails on monday evening and there was a reply about my ipod. One kid from the club pretended that he knew the thief and that the thief wants to give the ipod back. So I arranged a meeting and it really did work - I got it back from the kid on friday and felt awesome Please Register or Log in to view images. A few days later I found out that the kid, was the actual thief. So all it took was a rather stupid thief, a good idea and some luck.
