last month led to the arrest of a Pequannock man on Tuesday night after 
authorities tracked the computer to a Pequannock home -- and discovered 
the use of drugs at the location.

Pequannock police were first contacted by the university's campus police 
after the computer -- a Dell XPS laptop valued at $1,000 -- was reported 
stolen Nov. 22 by a student at the Bethlehem, Pa., university.

Using the computer's anti-theft tracking system, Lehigh authorities were

The campus police said the tracking software also was able to discover 
typed data, which revealed evidence of possible drug sales and activity 
at the home.
