Submission + - Tracking stolen laptops via MAC address

ArhcAngel writes: "My stepson's laptop was stolen recently and the person who stole it knew exactly where to look. I'm pretty sure he is acquainted with the person who stole it and they go to college together. My question for /. is since I have the MAC address of the laptop and I know where the kid goes to school is there a way to have the college IT dept. flag that MAC address when it hits the schools network? Has anyone ever done something similar and what kind of help or hindrance was the IT dept. in assisting in this kind of request?"
