I thought I had been caught once. I had been to my friends house to buy a box of 50 blank disks off him cheaply as he had a Saturday job at 17 bit Software and had "aquired" loads of disks *cough*. Whilst I was there I copied a few games onto about a third of the disks as I usually got most of my stuff from him anyway.

I left him about 10pm and was walking home with another friend holding my box of floppes when a car suddenly screeched to a halt along side and a guy jumped out on us. He was an undercover cop who asked us where we had just been and where we were going. My heart sank immediately as I thought I was in serious trouble. It turns out that there had been reports of a burglary nearby and they were looking for two guys responsible. As I was 17 at the time I got frisked and had to open the box of disks to prove I had no weapons or any tools on me. I just told him I only had blank disks on me so he accepted that and got back into his car and drove off.

To say I was relieved was an understatement

i was rather concerned when i got burgled and there were lots of copied cd's (movies mostly) around my house and the burglars had stolen some and left them scattered in the garden when they made their escape.

The police had come to investigate due to the alarm going off and when i got home the police were already there and i was told not to touch anything till the forensics arrived.

i was worried that they might comment in all the discs but they weren't in the slightest interested.

I assume the box of disks cost you whatever you paid + the cost of a new pair of underpants lol
