Yes, Virginia, there is honor among thieves. CNN has the story of a burglar who boosted an old Super 8 camera and tapes from a home in southern Spain only discovered to that the videos showed a man sexually abusing boys.

The unnamed robbery suspect, acting as a good (better?) Samaritan, hid the evidence under a parked car, then phoned police, telling them where to find it. Along with the tapes, he left a note with the home address of the suspected pedophile and the advice:

I've had the misfortune that these tapes have fallen into my hands and I feel obligated to turn them in so that you can do your job and put that [expletive] in prison for life.

Last Thursday, Spanish national police confirmed the arrest of a 64-year-old suspected child molester living in the southern provincial capital of Jaen. The man’s home is the one that had been burglarized.

The suspect is a local soccer coach who had lured some of his young players back to his home, where they watched pornographic videos together. The man then proceeded to sexually abuse the minors, police said.
