FBI Seizes Computer in Cruise Raid

9/5/2007 4:24 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

FBI agents working on the Tom Cruise photo extortion case raided a West Hollywood computer store and seized several computers -- and one MAC owner is steamed!
Tom Cruise, Katie Holmes
Poppy Ruiz left her computer with Hard Drive 911 and owner Marc Gittleman, assuming it would be fixed and returned to her. Didn't happen! FBI agents grabbed her G4 MAC as evidence in a case involving stolen wedding photos of Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes. Prosecutors say Gittleman obtained more than 700 pictures of Cruise's highly publicized nuptials to Katie Holmes, and copied them onto his hard drive.

Ruiz tells TMZ, "I love, adore, and so badly need my computer ... not to mention the years worth of memories, programs, and iTunes." When Poppy contacted the FBI, she was told that it could take up to 11 years to get the property back from evidence. Perhaps Cruise has one she can borrow until then!

An FBI spokesperson tells TMZ, "Agents are in the process of returning evidence as soon as possbie"

This is crazy. It seems like they can assess pretty quickly whether her computer has the stolen photos or not.

And now they have seperate bedrooms, Katie says she is fine with that, and the marriage is proven to be a sham. Katie gets inseminated and Tom doesn't have to touch her, and Katie is fine with this as long as she can sho, shop, shop. What a couple of frauds. Katie looks like a middle-aged woman unless Tom parades her around like some hooker wannabe at a Scientology party and she looks so made-up and phony, then it is back to housedresses and her tired old looks. These two are gross and disgusting and they think because they use People and OK mags as their own personal PR mags that everyone is fooled. Sorry, Tom and Katie, your PR crap is just too phony when you two have seperate bedrooms. And getting People and OK to only show you in your bathing suits from the waist and hips up, Katie, is way too obvious too, when we have all seen your actual cellulite and flabby thighs in other photos in mags you can't buy off. Phony morons. And stop dressing your daughter like an old hag, Katie, she is NOT you, that is so not nice to her, putting her in those stupid looking outfits that only grandmas would wear.

Oh but don't you know, Tom is special and anything that might affect him comes waaaaaaaaaay before anything that might affect us lesser mortals. What a jackass. I really wish he and Katie would vanish into thin air, perhaps Xenu can find a volcano to dump these two morons into?

He hasn't made a decent movie since Top Gun ( and she hasn't made any) and even that one isn't good for the acting (especially not his), just the hot Navy boys...but then I'm a little into the Navy boys since Hubby is a Sailor :-)

I'm glad Ms. Ruiz has gone public with this insanity. We're not talking Watergate tapes here -- it's some moronic actor's wedding pictures!! John Q. Public can have his car stolen or life threatened without nary a call back from the local flatfoots. But this little munchkin loses a few pictures and it's quel travesty!
Give this woman her Mac back and quit aiding the "above it all" celebutards in their pursuit of idiocy.

There wouldn't even be a story of the Store owner wasn't a thief. He needs to immediatly buy the lady a new computer, and the FBI can step it up. It doesn't take that long to assess the contents of a computer. Give me a break. Any teenage hacker can do it in no time.

#5 - Exactly right.

Ugghhh!    

I'm with most other's here.......I CAN'T STAND TOM CRISIS AND KATIE GOLD DIGGER either!

What could POSSIBLY have been in those photos? Pictures of them having sex with each other? NOT LIKELY!

Otherwise Tom would not have sent the FBI after someone for stealing pointless photos. There must be something really nasty in those photos!

Nice Tom has the kind of money to actually use the FBI when there are other "real" crimes going on out there. I agree.........Tom hasn't made a GOOD movie in years!!! And Katie has NEVER made a good movie!

Tom and Katie suck! Both of them!!! There's no way I will go see a Hitler movie with Tom in it. Perhaps he should have opted for the Hitler part. Wasn't Hitler short too? Not to mention also NUTS!

As a taxpayer, I don't want my money going to assist this creep over some stolen photos. Does this seem like it should not be a part of FBI duty? Let him hire his own sleuths to track down his photos like the rest of us would have to.

Poor lady. She should keep calling and E-mailing the FBI continually, night and day until they return her computer or want to commit suicide! What a group of A holes. They could at least replace hers and load it up with whatever she had on there that she wanted.
