Ringing Lets Warren Police Catch Cell Phone Thief
Warren Police say a ringing cell phone gave them the evidence they needed to arrest the man who stole it.
Warren police officers confronted 18-year-old Loyd J. Thomas at a CVS pharmacy after a resident reported someone trying to enter his home before dawn Tuesday.
Police tell The Macomb Daily of Mount Clemens that a suspect entered three parked cars and took a cell phone.
Police say a dispatcher dialed the number of the missing phone, and it rang in Thomas’s pocket.
The Warren resident was arraigned Tuesday on theft and car break-in charges before 37th District Judge Jennifer Faunce, who set his bond at $7,500. Thomas was in the Macomb County jail Tuesday night, and there was no information on whether he has a lawyer.
