    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.
