Stolen GPS leads police to perp
NOT THE SHARPEST KNIFE IN THE DRAWER: Waving a handgun to intimidate his victims during a stick-up of a Radio Shack on Chicago’s South Side, Raymond Jefferson and two unarmed accomplices (allegedly) bound the hands of workers and customers with plastic ties, UPI reports. The three then stole the victims’ cellphones and $17,000 worth of merchandise, including iPads, Kindles and a GPS device from the electronic store, Chicago Tribune reports:
[P]olice tracked him down quickly thanks to the global positioning equipment he stole, prosecutors said. …
On Sunday, Cook County Judge Maria Kuriakos Ciesil ordered him held on $350,000 bond on charges of armed robbery and aggravated kidnapping.
Jefferson was in custody within two hours of the heist. He was identified by the people in the store at the time.
