Stolen GPS unit leads to arrest of N.Y. suspect
AMITYVILLE, N.Y. — Police arrested a man on suspicion of stealing a GPS receiver after the device apparently gave him away.
Amityville police say they stopped the 33-year-old man early Saturday after they spotted him trying to ride a bicycle while carrying several items, including a car GPS unit.
Police say the cyclist gave evasive answers to questions, and when the officer pressed the home button on the GPS, the unit displayed a nearby address. The resident of that home told police the device was his.
