Stolen GPS leads police to suspects
By Kim JANSSEN Staff Reporter April 9, 2012 1:27AM

A stolen GPS unit led police directly to armed robbers who stole more than $17,000 in electronics from a South Side Radio Shack, prosecutors said.

Raymond Jefferson, of the 6700 block of South Evans, allegedly teamed up with two unnamed accomplices to rob the electronics store in the 2300 block of West 95th Street on Friday.

He used zip ties to cuff staff and customers, then took their phones and stole a bag stuffed with iPads, cell phones and Kindles as well as the GPS unit, according to a police report.

Police tracked him via the GPS unit and he was charged with three counts of armed robbery and kidnapping, assistant Cook County State’s Attorney Wendy Caceres said.

His bail was set Sunday at $350,000.

Dumbasses. I'd be wary of stealing anything electronic now-a-days. Most everything has a gps chip in it or I'm sure it if it has wifi or can be hooked up the the internet somehow the cops should be able to track it down. I'm not sure, but I would think that they could even get the location of a stolen tv if you hooked it up to the internet.

Odd story.
The ipads and cell phones all have GPS as well as a method of communicating the location out from the unit.
A hiking or navigational GPS unit typically doesn't have any way of doing that under normal use.

Most likely they got the guy using the cell phone info. Wonder why they don't want to say it that way?

Some of them are starting to learn to shut off everything because of reading about the GPS in the media. Good thing these guys don't read.

Because the person who wrote that article is too stupid to know the difference. Almost every other story says something like this:

A Chicago man accused of robbing a South Side Radio Shack of $17,000 Friday night was hastily tracked down and arrested after being incriminated by the global positioning equipment in the merchandise he stole
As quickly as they nabbed him, the cops probably used the GPS in the phones that dummy stole from the employees.
