Stupidity

When Stealing A Phone, Hang Up On The Cops Before Giving Taxi Directions

from the a-bit-of-advice dept

What is it about criminals doing stupid things with mobile phones? First we had the bank robber who called up the bank and asked for more money soon after robbing them, and now we have the guy who broke into someone's home and stole a mobile phone. The police called him and he first answered the call, and then didn't hang up before telling the taxi driver where to take him. It didn't take long for the police to track him down, even without needing to use any sophisticated tracking technologies.
