…Habbo Hotel theft can land you in the real slammer?

Habbo Hotel

So you’ve probably read the story about the 17-year-old Dutch kid who was arrested for stealing virtual furniture valued at over $5,800 in the online world of Habbo Hotel, but my question is this (besides the question of why anyone would pay $5,800 for virtual furniture): If he just stole virtual furniture, shouldn’t he just get put into a virtual jail?
