Roambust: Criminals Steal Over A Hundred Roambee Tracking Devices . . . Police Use Devices To Immediately Track and Arrest Suspects

imagesCriminals in Santa Clara have discovered the only thing worse than stealing a police cruiser with a GPS device.  Instead, they stole over a hundred of Roambee GPS trackers from the manufacturer.  When asked if they knew where the thieves went, Roambee employees said . . . well yeah.  They then turned on their tracker on the GPS devices and police immediately arrested the stunned criminals.

It appears that the thieves might not have known that they had stolen tracking devices.  The company’s Dela Cruz Avenue labs equipped each of the officers with a tracker and it took only a few hours to pinpoint the location of a warehouse in Union City.

The two men were arrested and drugs were found in a storage locker with other stolen property — making this an even sweeter bust.

  1. Love this! Same happens when bozos break into Apple stores too! Hilarious! I’d love to see a .gif of the perps faces when the cops arrive! LOL!

  2. The news story leads us to this startling headline: “Video shows Nevada thieves stealing 30,000 condoms, $6,000 worth of sex toys”

    Optimists, I would say.
