Teens aren’t very good at stealing things.
First, there was that kid who stole a guy’s phone and then incriminated himself with a selfie. Now there’s the story of a group of teens who broke into a Baltimore man’s house, found his car keys, then took his Jeep for a joyride. What they didn’t realize was that when they synced their phones to the car’s Bluetooth system, they were offering up valuable clues. The guy who owned the car–who happened to work for an internet security firm–crowd-sourced his own investigation, locating one of the kids via Instagram.
The man also posted images from a home security camera, which shows the kids in his home. One was recognized by a school security officer and has been arrested.
The moral of the story? Your iPhone will get you in trouble. If you’re going to go on a robbery spree, consider leaving it at home.
