Laptop Burglar Back In Jail After Calling Victim

White Plains (NY) - One of the laptop thieves caught by a clever Apple store employee is back in jail. 20-year-old Ian Frias was out on bail, but broke a restraining order by phoning one of the victims. Frias is now back in jail on an additional misdemeanor charge of criminal contempt.

Frias and his accomplice Edmon Shahikian stole thousands of dollars of electronics, including a MacBook Air, from a White Plains New York apartment. One of the victims - an Apple store employee - photographed the thieves through the laptop’s webcam and then sent the pictures to the police.

Judge Barbara Leak entered a protection order that forbids the suspects from contacting any of the victims. Frias was out on bail on the burglary charges, but now is back in jail.
