You’ve just robbed someone and taken their iPhone, now what do you do? Why not snap a pic of yourself brandishing your weapon?
Well for one, it could lead to your arrest, as a Philly teenager found out recently. Philly.com tells how a tech-savvy mugging victim was able to turn up the pressure on her mugger:
The 20-year-old woman had programmed her phone so that it would automatically send photos to her home computer. Some time after the robbery, she received a photo of a young man holding a large handgun to his head.
Shortly after seeing his picture plastered on the evening news, the gun-wielding cell phone bandit, eighteen-year-old Kadeem Cook of Philadelphia, turned himself in to police.
