In Oklahoma, a man who stole a church computer earlier in the month was caught when he attempted to access pornography and eventually called the filtering company to have it removed.
The church reported the computer stolen believing it may have been removed by someone within the church due to no evidence of force entry. The church’s suspicions were comfirmed by the filtering company Convenant Eyes, when the suspect called them by telephone requesting to have the filter removed.
The suspect, identified as Troy Ridling, a former parishioner of Owasso First Assembly of God, was arrested by local police when Covenant Eyes was able to determine the location of the computer and contacted law enforcement.
When the police arrived at Ridling’s home, he initially denied having taken the computer. When the police found the computer in his home, he finally confessed and was charged with burglary and possession of stolen property.
