A well known part of domain name folklore relates to the theft of the valuable ***.com domain name back in 1995; a theft which amazingly left the domain under control of the thief for five years.

The crim who stole the domain by submitting fraudulent and deceptive ownership transfer documents to Network Solutions was ordered to pay $65 million to the rightful owner when the case finally reached its conclusion. Upon losing the judgement, however, the thief fled to Mexico to avoid having to pay up.

Well, justice has finally come to fugitive Stephen Cohen, who was handed over to US authorities by the Mexican police in late October.

This story is a little old, but it's reads like a great soap opera script:
