Get arested as a result of SMS messages


The STAR ( a local news paper) of 14 August reported how texting helped the police in arresting accomplices in a burglary.

Initially the police were alerted about two men breaking  into a shed that formed part of the complex of a local swimming pool. Upon arrival the men ran off yet one of the burglars was arrested nearby the scene. Whilst in custody he started receiving a number of SMS messages asking where he was. The arresting officers sent a reply with a pick up address near the park. Two others showed up by car that were arrested for burglary allegedly because they were providing a getaway car.
