My expierience with getting the UK law enforcement to deal with
cybercrimes has been less then stellar.  Handing them logs of a kid taking
down large networks (Including an entire smaller country one day),
complete with evidence from the networks being hit, and him bragging he
did it resulted in them picking him up and releasing him the next day.
They never charged him with anything and basically told him to not do it
again..

Kinda sucks..
