NY GPS thieves tracked and cuffed

'At the next junction, go straight to jail'

Securing Web Applications Made Simple and Scalable

Three master criminals who stole 14 GPS units from cars in a New York garage hadn't considered the possibility of a satellite-guided police bust, Tom's Guide reports.

In mitigation, we should note that the trio thought they were stealing mobile phones from the Town of Babylon Public Works in Lindenhurst when they lifted 14 devices. Kurt Husfeldt, 46, his 13-year-old son and 20-year-old Steven Mangiapanella were soon put straight when officers busted the former on his doorstep.

Husfeldt senior was arrested on a criminal possession of stolen property rap. The other two perps were cuffed on grand larceny charges. ®
