Horatio Toure, 31, picked the wrong time and place to engage in some felonious conduct. Toure saw a woman using an IPhone and snatched it out of her hand while peddling away on his bike. The problem is that the woman was demonstrating the new GPS feature on the phone and promptly helped the police track down Toure.
The phone’s actual owner, David Kahn is the chief executive of Covia Labs of Mountain View and was demonstrating a product which allows real-time tracking of the location of other people and resources. He had instructed his assistant, Jordan Sturm, to take his phone out on the sidewalk so he could track her location on his laptop.
If Toure had looked down, he would have seen himself being tracked on the phone.
It took 10 minutes to arrest the first IFelon. He is being held for grand theft and possession of stolen property.
