Police say a burglar in southern Spain who stole an old Super 8 camera and tapes from a home discovered to his horror the graphic video content of a man sexually abusing boys.

The burglar put three tapes in a brown envelope, hid them under a parked car, and then called police from a public phone, directing them to go find it.

The suspect is a local football (soccer) coach who lived alone. He lured some of his young players into watching pornographic videos together, and then sexually abused them, police said.


My question is, why would a burglar steal a super 8 camera and a bunch of tapes??

vintage cameras and recording equipment can fetch some serious money these days .

the evidence would be admissible however the burgler would still face burglary charges. the evidence was not obtained by law enforcement nor any of their agents, so it would be admissible. look up fruit of the poisonous tree doctrine, since inadmissibility is determined primarily thru determining if LAW ENFORCEMENT did anything illegal to obtain the evidence.

...or coerced, or in any way implied that a non law enforcement person should steal such evidence.

He could be granted immunity.

A thief with a conscious ?

Even criminals have little patience with kiddie molesters. They tend to die in prison when folks know what they are in for.
