    COLUMBUS, Ohio — A BlackBerry wireless device sought by the state inspector general in the investigation into former attorney general Marc Dann apparently turned up in the possession of a Columbus couple.
    Rico Perry and his girlfriend Samantha Rudolph don't know much about politics or Marc Dann for that matter. But the couple contacted 10 Investigates Tuesday evening when the device in their possession matched the image of a BlackBerry shown in a 10TV News story on the investigation of Dann's office, 10 Investigates' Paul Aker reported.

    Aker dialed the phone number on the device, which sends callers to the voicemail of Jen Urban, an attorney in the attorney general's office.
    Wow so she didn't have her device locked. Shame on her.

    wait, MArc Dann's BB turned up or is this another device in the office of the Ohio Attroney General?

    I thought the Government already had this device and couldn't figure out how to unlock it...

    Okay so multiple BB's in the investigation.
    This is from http://www.10tv.com/live/content/ten...y.html?sid=102

    COLUMBUS, Ohio — Less than one week after Marc Dann resigned as Ohio's attorney general, odd events in his former office continue. A state issued BlackBerry wanted by the Inspector General disappeared, 10 Investigates' Paul Aker reported.
    The device belonged to Jen Urban, an attorney in the attorney general's office. She claimed someone stole it out of her home.


    "It's a little unnerving but it just seems so unusual for the area," said Kyle Tretheway, who lives next door to Urban.
    Dann's former scheduler, Jessica Utovich, was in Urban's home during the alleged crime, Aker reported.
    Utovich resigned after it was revealed she spent several nights in Dann's Dublin-area condominium. She was supposedly asleep on the couch and Urban was on the back porch at about 5 a.m. when someone entered through an unlocked front door and stole a new television set, according to a police report.
    Urban claimed the burglar also took her purse and BlackBerry, Aker reported.
    "The whole thing is very bizarre," Tretheway said.
    State investigators said they were "very curious" about the timing. The burglary allegedly took place just hours after an unannounced sweep of Dann's office by the Inspector General. Computers and files were confiscated that day. Inspector General Thomas Charles also locked down other computers, including one belonging to Urban, Aker reported.
    Charles said that his office wants to find the missing BlackBerry but had little comment beyond that, Aker reported.
    The device could be important because during the internal investigation, investigators wrote in their final report they believed Urban was romantically linked to Leo Jennings III, Dann's former communications director.
    Jennings was fired because he allegedly tried to get Urban to take part in a cover-up. Urban told 10 Investigates that she has no idea who would break into her home.
    She said that she is not sure if the burglary is linked to the attorney general's office investigation and did not know if Charles would think it was important.
    The missing BlackBerry is the latest in a string of weird occurrences in the case. Early on, Bureau of Criminal Investigation agents somehow locked themselves out of a similar BlackBerry that contained potential evidence in the case.
    During Dann's internal investigation, a lawyer representing Cindy Stankoski, one of the two women who alleged sexual harassment taking place inside Dann's office, claimed someone ransacked her office while she was on vacation.
    A BCI employee remains on leave for removing information from her computer without permission.

    Hah...That picture cracks me up...YOUR BLACKBERRY IS BACKWARDS IN THE HOLSTER YO!

    Funny thing is, when I first got my 8700, I didn't know which way it was supposed to go in the holster, and I always put it in the holster the way it's shown in the picture.

    I was like "man, this holster sucks, it doesn't fit right".

    That, and I always wound up hitting the "P" button with it in the holster that way and calling a friend who I had on speed dial.

    I thought the same thing, but it could have been she dialed the number it said to call while on the lock screen. Didnt think of it until I just looked at my locked berry =)
