San Jose police have broken up an alleged identity theft crime ring using search warrants to seize and examine the suspects' PDAs.
According to the New York Times the alleged ringleader had the names of more than 20 victims along with their social security, bank account and credit card numbers and other personal information stored on his Sony Clie handheld device.
Included in the To Do list were tasks such as picking up materials at the local office supply store to make fake cheques.
Email messages contained confirmations of transfers from victims' bank accounts, and the PDA's digital camera was used to take pictures of his associates.
A police spokesman said that it was difficult for the suspect to deny that the Clie was his, as it had his parents' details stored in it under the name 'Mom and Dad'.
