Mobile Phone Thieves Brought Down By Own Videophone Recording

from the whoops dept

A group of thieves who went around robbing mobile phone stores were caught after a five-month crime spree. Some of the evidence used against them includes a video they shot themselves on a cameraphone during one of the heists. Apparently, the phone was recovered when the men were arrested, and it allowed the police to confirm that the men were involved in that particular heist. Who says videophones are only used for “bad” purposes?
