Stolen GPS leads Chicago police to suspect
Suspect charged with armed robbery and aggravated kidnapping
CHICAGO — Authorities in Chicago said a suspect in a $17,000 Radio Shack robbery was tracked down through a GPS device that was part of the loot.
Assistant State's Attorney Wendy Caceres said Raymond Jefferson, 20, who was wielding a handgun, and two unarmed accomplices tied up workers and customers at the West 95th Street store Friday and took items that included cellphones, iPads, Kindles and a GPS device, the Chicago Sun-Times reported Monday.
Carceres told the Chicago Tribune Jefferson was arrested about 2 hours after the crime by officers who located him through the stolen GPS unit.
