Phone thief tracked down with mobile GPS

An old-fashioned robbery had a newfangled solution for a woman in Battambang this week.

Police said the 26-year-old had laid down for a rest after plugging in her mobile phone at her mother’s grocery only for a passerby to swipe it as she snoozed.

Unfortunately for our thief, the woman’s phone was equipped with a GPS system, which military police officers who received the complaint used to easily track down the culprit.

He quickly confessed.
