Drug deal suspect nabbed by WoW

A suspected drug dealer has been collared because of his massive addiction to... World of Warcraft. The interactive online fantasy role playing game, nicknamed Warcrack in some circles - because you just have to keep going back for one more hit - was such a draw for one Alfred Hightower that Illinois cops managed to track him down in Azeroth.

Blizzard Entertainment, the company which owns the most popular computer game ever, was forced to hand over a package of information, including the unfortunate Hightower's IP address and user information, which led to him being tracked down to his bolt hole in Canada.

Tech savvy cops are also reported to have used Google Maps to pinpoint the alleged miscreant, who played under the name Rastlynn and now faces up to ten years in a very real jail.
