James Thomas, an employee of Ford motor company is being investigated for selling copies of software on eBay that is used only for controlling industrial machines (like robots) typically used in manufacturing.
First of all, you are an idiot if you steal something, then sell it on eBay. You are even more of an idiot if you steal and sell something that obscure and unique. Maybe he should have stole cars, and hooked up with the guy selling VIN numbers with no car... Oh wait, he got busted too. :)
