A sixteen year old was arrested red handed by Peoria police after breaking into a car. He was found after he accidentally pressed a button that autodialled 911 on his phone without realising it. The operator heard the teenager telling his friends about how difficult it was to rip his loot out of the car and called the police.
With the help of the phone company the signal from the call was triangulated and a car dispatched. The teenager was arrested with the stolen goods still in his hands.
One wonders if he should have his phone taken off him, or made to carry one permanently to sap his confidence.
