Suspected Criminal Drops Smartphone: Law Enforcement Responds Appropriately

In an interesting turn of events during a shoplifting attempt at a local Walmart Store, a local law enforcement officer in Canton, Texas, recovered the suspected criminal’s smartphone. And the officer used the smartphone owner’s own Facebook account to send him a message:

Here is the message that Officer Bradshaw, from the Canton Texas Police Department, left on “Bryan Ward’s” smartphone:

Hey Bryan… Officer Bradshaw here with the Canton Police Department. It seems that you dropped your phone durig your attempt to steal the 46 ” LCD TV that you left behind from our local Wal-Mart, which is valued at $863.84. The sales associate stated you could run really fast. Lets hope this is true for your sake… I would venture to say that you have the same hat on in your profile picture as you do in the recorded video that has been secured as evidence from wal-Mart. No need in advising you of your legal warning at this time. I will be obtaining an arrest warrant for you in the near future. If you have any questions or feel like turning yourself in please feel free to contact me here at the PD at (903) 567-4991. Just ask for me… Peace Out.

Well, there’s not much else I can say. How awesome is technology now? Apparently the suspected criminals aren’t getting any smarter.
