Police Seize Camera

The camera that was used to take pictures of Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s daughter has been seized by police in the Massachusetts area USA.

The Hollywood couple went to Africa for the birth of their daughter Shiloh. Their stay in Namibia was shrouded in heavy security, with bodyguards and undercover Namibia police to shield Brad and Angelina’s parents from the Paparazzi and journalists.

The pictures destined for “Hello Magazine” were taken by Angelina’s brother James Haven and the money from the exclusive was to go to charity, so it was quite a surprise to see three images on the Internet.

Mr James Haven, had apparently taken his camera into a photographic shop with its memory stick for repair. The police have raided one of the workers homes and recovered a memory stick for further examination and the camera from the photographic shop as well.

So next time you send in your camera in for repair or service, best check that it doesn’t contain any valuable or embarrassing images.
