Cell phones are great technology. They're always working for us. Well, at least until we lose them and they start working for someone else...like the police.
A man suspected of burglarizing nearly 20 Anne Arundel County businesses was arrested after police recovered the cell phone he left behind.
First, police found the phone on July 19 at the Anne Arundel County Fairgrounds. Nine days later, they got video of the suspected break-in artist from a shaved ice stand in Pasadena.
After using the phone to find people who might know the owner, Officers showed the video to family members of the suspect. Those family members identified him as 45-year-old David Evi Cooper.
