It looks like thieves need to be a little more careful the next time they decide to steal a smartphone. The folks over at GadgetTrak, the creators of the smartphone tracking software, have reported that their software is currently leading authorities to a thief suspected of stealing a smartphone from a Sprint store.
A thief was caught on camera walking into a Sprint store in Washington Square Mall and stealing two demo phones that were on display. Unfortunately for him, the phones were loaded with GadgetTrak, a phone tracking software that can inform its owner of where the phone is and any activity that is going on with the phone. While the thief hasn’t been caught yet, GadgetTrak believes that it’s only going to be a matter of time before the authorities catch up to him. Watch a news report about the case:
