Burglar Finds Kiddie Porn While Robbing a House; Calls Cops on Soccer Coach
Quote:Prompted by an anonymous tip, presumably from the burglar, police found three videotapes of sexual abuse against children aged about 10.

The tapes had been placed beneath a brown car parked in the south-central city of Jaén, along with a note giving them the address of the suspect, police said in a statement.

“I have had the misfortune to have these tapes fall into my hands and feel obliged to submit them so you can do your work and put this … in jail for life,” the anonymous note read.

The alleged aggressor was identified from the content of the videotapes and arrested after a search of his home and the indoor football club where he worked, police said.

The suspect had reported a burglary at his home nine days earlier, listing several appliances as stolen but making no mention of his missing video camera and tapes, police said.

An honorable thief. The guy's on tape, so no testimony required.

The homeowner seems to have a good argument for suppressing the "evidence". If ever there was an illegal search and seizure, this is it.

I don't see how the prosecution could use this sort of illegally seized evidence.

I didn't realize when I first posted, but it looks like this was in Spain. I wonder how different the laws are.

This is no evidence that there was a search and seizure. The argument could be made very easily that the individual who turned it in came across it through other means.

Also, if this had occurred in the USA, I think that the Constitutional protection against unreasonable search and seizure only applies to agents of the government, although I'm not 100% sure on the interpretation of that part of the Constitution. Honestly, this isn't a scenario that came up in the Constitutional Law class.

He gets cool points for that. But the lowest form of life in any western prison are pedophiles, so it's no surprise that a burglar would turn him in.

Everyone I know who burglarized homes, and I know quite a few, did it because they are fucking idiots. Had nothing to do with being poor or actually needing the shit.

Wouldn't be surprised if it was a victim seeking some revenge without wanting to put his name in the spotlight. Seems like a random thief would have just tossed the video tapes without watching them.
