Using technology to arrest a thief

 

With the aid of surveillance video and a smartphone GPS locator, Fullerton police tracked down a man suspected of burglarizing the Grace Ministries International church on Saturday afternoon.

 

A video camera caught a man taking several purses, wallets and cell phones. One of the victims used the GPS locator function of her phone and tracked it to a motel in the city of Bellflower.

Los Angeles County Sheriff Deputies responded to the hotel and detained the man whose shorts and shoes matched those on the video footage.

The man was arrested on suspicion of burglary.
