    Thief Finds Child Porn On Stolen Cellphone, Turns Self In To Help Catch Pedophile

    A man from the city of Ballarat in southeast Australia knew he was breaking the law last October when he reached into a car with its windows open and took two cellphones and a wallet.

    But when he browsed the cellphones and found what appeared to be pornographic images of children, he knew turning himself in was a small price to pay to help police catch the man responsible for taking the photos, the Ballarat Courier reports.

    The thief, whose name has been withheld for legal reasons, immediately took the phones to the nearest police station.

    Though police told him he may be prosecuted for stealing the phones -- and would likely face charges for allegedly stealing a car last year -- the man agreed to turn himself in if it would help investigators track down and build a case against the child pornographer.

    Indeed, the cellphone images allowed police to arrest and charge a 46-year-old man with a child pornography offense, Nine News MSN reported.

    "I haven't seen anything quite like that and I commend the man for his admissions," Victoria Police Chief Commissioner Ken Lay told Fairfax Radio, according to the Australian Associated Press. "It's a strange old world, isn't it, when it comes to the world of crime.''

    The cellphone thief appeared in Ballarat Magistrates Court on Tuesday and pleaded guilty to seven charges including theft of a vehicle. Upon learning how his surrender helped investigators, magistrate Michelle Hodgson praised the man for his actions.

    "You did the right thing," she said, according to the Courier. "That kind of offending is very serious. You are to be commended for your conduct even though it placed you at jeopardy of losing your own liberty."

    I've always thought the best solution to deal with the worst of the worst is to sent them free among general prison population. They'll take care of 'em.

    this is great.
    there was a similar story in the news a couple of days ago where people broke into a car to steal it, found a dead baby inside and immediately called the police.



    Car thieves discover dead baby

    Four young car thieves in the western German state of Saarland notified the police on Sunday night after they stumbled on the corpse of a small baby in the boot of a car they were breaking into.



    The thieves – three men and a woman aged between 19 and 28 – alerted the authorities after breaking into a car in search of valuables and finding the body of a baby inside a rucksack.

    "We're assuming it was there for quite awhile," said police spokesman Georg Himbert.

    The small red car was parked on some land next to a petrol station in the small town of Merzig, and was apparently up for sale, the Süddeutsche Zeitung reported Monday.

    The ownership of the vehicle was tracked down to a 23-year-old woman who reportedly admitted that she was the mother of the dead child.

    She is currently being interrogated by police. An autopsy on the baby is also being carried out.

    Police are hoping the autopsy will determine whether the baby was still-born or was killed.

    I hope they end up dismissing his charges because of what he did.

    #2- Thief should have just said he found this cellphone on the ground.

    It sounds like the thief wants to help catch the pedo, so he would have to admit he stole it from a car to help police find the car and its owner, rather than claiming he found it on the ground.

    ^why? he can still say he found it but looked through it to try to find the owner which wouldn't have been illegal.

    I think this guy is a habitual petty criminal and Ballarat isn't a huge town so if he handed it in and said he'd "found" it the cops probably wouldn't believe him, especially if the guy who lost it reported his car had been broken into and other items had been stolen.

    he could have dropped it in the mail to the cops with a note RE: pedo.

    ^But what if it was somehow traced back to him and he was incriminated in child porn just because he tried to stay anonymous? I'd rather be busted for petty theft than possibly face child porn charges.

    Sad these folks have more morals to do the right thing than Joe Paterno ever did.
