Technology helps to solve crime

Posted in Solving Crime September 8th, 2009 @ 10:06 am

Who would have thought that a stolen iPhone could catch the thieves who stole it? Apparently, the latest technology for iPhones includes a GPS application where you can pinpoint the location of the phone if it’s ever lost or stolen.

A CMU student in Pittsburgh was mugged on the street by two men who flashed what looked like a gun. They demanded his wallet, PIN and iPhone. Thankfully, the muggers let the student go. However, his friend reminded him about the application on his iPhone. He got to work right away and started to track his iPhone. Within five minutes, he knew where the robbers were. He contacted the police and the criminals were apprehended.

The criminals will be charged with robbery as well as using stolen credit cards. Isn’t technology wonderful!
