Forget Bait Money, Just Toss A GPS Device In The Bank Robber's Bag
from the you've-been-tracked dept
By this point, bank robbers have learned about dye-packs and bait bills, but now they might need to get up to speed on how GPS works. Apparently a bank robber in Spokane, Washington was caught after bank employees tossed some sort of GPS device into the bank robber's duffel bag which allowed the police to track them down quickly. Of course, what's a little odd is that another version of the story seems to indicate that the bank robber only assumed that's how he was caught. The court documents, according to that article read: "Fricks assumed that he had been caught as the result of some type of GPS tracking device, which he assumed had been placed with the money." All of the other stories seem to indicate that is exactly what happened, but it's a little odd to see the court focusing in on how the robber assumed he was caught, rather than how he was really caught. Still, the bank robber in question was impressed by the cops' ability to track him down so fast: "You guys are good!" is what he apparently told the police as they arrested him.
