Unlucky Thief Steals the Wrong iPhone

iPhone Thief

Horatio Toure might be one of the most unlucky thieves in the Bay area. It all started when Toure rode his bicycle up to a woman and grabbed her iPhone out of her hands and pedaled away.

Problem was, the woman was carrying the phone as part of a company’s demonstration of a real-time GPS tracking program. If the bandit would have taken a peek at the screen, he would have seen himself traveling across a map of San Francisco.

Toure was captured a half-mile away about 10 minutes later, at 4:01 p.m., said police Sgt. Troy Dangerfield. He was booked into jail on suspicion of grand theft and possession of stolen property.

Out of a zillion iPhones in San Francisco, Toure definitely picked the wrong one at the wrong time.
