iphone leads to arrest

Scott Simons of Oysterville, Washington was arrested after accepting a call on an iPhone he had recently stolen.

In fact, Simons stole the iPhone himself, after walking into the office of the victim and removing the iPhone from the purse of the unidentified victim.

After discovering that the iPhone was stolen, and in an attempt to retrieve it, the theft victim called the police.

Furthermore, in an attempt to locate the whereabouts of the stolen iPhone, the police made a phone-call to it.

As a result, the Simons answered the phone and the police were led to the iPhone and the bailee of the iPhone.

Unfortunately, for the man who had stolen the iPhone, he was already on probation for aggravated theft.

In his possession, Simons had heroin residue and drug paraphernalia.

Due to the fact that the iPhone had a GPS device on it, the police were able to locate twenty-three year old Simons.

Police arrested Simons and transported him to the local jail, where he was later booked on three charges of heroin possession, theft and burglary.

Message: crime, nor drugs pay.
