Same here.

Some time ago, with a lot of perseverance and luck, i tracked down
someone who had put a lot of credit card details on the web.
I came across it purely by accident. Took a few days, but put all the info together and gave it to the federal cops here in Oz.

Asked to get feedback, but have not heard anything.
(this is the short version of an interesting few nights work).

5 minutes 5 hours all the same to the cops

Edit:

Cars been broken into 3 times each time I placed a call response time went up one hour.

I saw a lady being forced into a car by a Guy....(not our "a guy" but a random guy) called the cops and three cops drove passed ignored the screaming and yelling, and the cops finally showed up two minutes after he got her in the car and drove off.

They have to get a supeona from the court=5days-1.5 weeks
ISP looking for that ip in there DHCP bank=2 days
Matching the modem to the DHCP given IP at the given point in time= 3 days
Cops leaving Krispy Kream = 1 day
getting search warrant for residence in question = 2 - 5 days
cops arriving at location in question... god knows how long
estimated time = WAY TO LONG

No Krispy Kream should shorten the wait by at least one day.
