X ratedYes, Virginia, there is honor among thieves. CNN has the story of a burglar who boosted an old Super 8 camera and tapes from a home in southern Spain only discovered to that the videos showed a man sexually abusing boys.

Last Thursday, Spanish national police confirmed the arrest of a 64-year-old suspected child molester living in the southern provincial capital of Jaen. The man’s home is the one that had been burglarized.

The suspect is a local soccer coach who had lured some of his young players back to his home, where they watched pornographic videos together. The man then proceeded to sexually abuse the minors, police said.

Police have identified four children who were victims of the alleged abuse, including a 16-year-old who may have been abused for six years.

The suspected pedophile had reported the break-in at his home to police, listing various electrical appliances that had been stolen. He neglected to mention the camera or the tapes. During an investigation of his home, police say they found other tapes with graphic content of child sexual abuse.

And what of the “burglar with a conscience?” Police are still looking for him.
