Hacker's Last Laugh

MANISTEE, Michigan () -- Police have an all-points-bulletin out for the man who sold them a computer program that is eating up their records.


The program, called Crime Tracker, was billed as a way for police to keep track of cases and was sold to around 25 police departments across Michigan.


"It was user friendly, it was simple and did a lot,'' said Manistee County Undersheriff Dale Kowalkowski. There's just one problem: "The program eats itself up after a while,'' he said.
