Stealing a cell phone isn’t a bright idea. Police used the GPS capability to catch a robbery suspect by locating the phone of one the victims. Remember that, if others can look up your location through Google, or some other service, obviously it can be used against you. The lesson to remember here is this, when doing something stupid, leave your phone at home, and don’t steal a replacement for the one you left at home.
For the record I’m glad the guy got caught, this is more of just a friendly reminder. When taking care of your Jews in the Attic, leave it at home.
