Burglars fingered by SatNav

There has been talk in recent years of the UK implementing a satellite tracking system for road users to catch speeding criminals. As a precursor to this a hapless pair of criminals have shown how effective satellite tracking systems can be.

The pair of would-be master criminals drove round in a SatNav equipped car robbing houses only to be snitched on by the SatNav system. It had recorded the locations they had visited and provided ample evidence to place them at the scene of crime!

Ian Bansie, 33, used his work’s motor to ferry 31-year-old accomplice Steve Warrington to ten homes in Reigate, Surrey, completely unaware that the satellite navigation system was dutifully keeping a record of their crime spree. –The Register

[Editor’s note: These two definitely qualify as Stupid People of the Day.]
