There was an article in the Spokan news paper (or at least on the
paper's web site) about a family that was raided.  The police found
three PCs and kids who weren't good at turning off the lights.

They got a warrent on the basis that the family (5 people, I think) had
a nearly $300 electric.  I only have a wife, and that's not that far off
from what some of my electric bills are.
