Crime tip: Don’t turn on that stolen GPS tracker unit

The Courier-Mail

It might be the easiest arrest Mt Ommaney [Australia] police have ever made. One man has been charged with robbery after he was tracked by a satellite navigation system he had stolen [when he] inadvertently alerted police to his exact whereabouts.

The bust led police to recover tens of thousands [of dollars] of stolen equipment taken in what appeared to be sophisticated heists.

“Sophisticated”? How sophisticated do you have to be to stick your head up and call out “Yoo Hoo, Officer! Here I am.”
