A New York woman helped nab some Mac-nappers, by programming her computer to take their picture.

Police in White Plains report about $5,000 worth of electronics had been ripped-off from her apartment last month.

Police say the victim got a call from a friend asking if she was online.

That's because the suspects had used the stolen MacBook to surf the Net.

Officers say the woman was to able to remotely activate the laptop's built-in camera.

She turned the digital snapshots over to police, who report busting two suspects.

Police say they've also recovered most of the stolen electronic gear.
