GPS Arrest

Bank robbery suspect caught through GPS device 

Police say modern technology foiled an old-fashioned bank robbery yesterday in suburban Cincinnati. A teller placed an electronic Global Positioning System device in the bag of stolen money taken by the suspect, enabling police to track the man down in 42 minutes. Authorities say that after 46-year-old William Ingram left a US Bank in suburban Colerain Township, the GPS device tracked him to a car dealership. Authorities say the suspect was returning a Honda that he had borrowed for a test drive but actually used as a getaway car. Authorities say when Ingram was confronted, money began spilling from his pockets.
