ALVA, Fla. - Deputies arrested Candice Miller only after they raided the wrong house. Investigators busted into the neighbors' house suspecting they were sending child porn. Turns out Miller's neighbors didn't secure their wireless Internet connection.
Ted Davis says he was thrown to the ground and had his home searched by deputies Tuesday morning. They were looking for his neighbor - Candice Miller.
Davis says Miller was stealing Davis' unsecured Internet connection which deputies say she used to send pornographic images of herself with her two children. Computer experts say this could have easily been avoided.
Frank Pieczatkiewicz from Computer Help Southwest Florida says, "What you want to do is secure it. The router has the ability to add an encryption key that is a series of numbers or letters that only you would know because it's programmed into your router then you would make the connection with your laptop. Your equipment, your laptop, would remember that."
He also says when people steal your Internet, it makes it slower and opens up your personal files to whoever happens to be near.
