Dumb criminals don't know what a smart phone can do. Glad the looser got caught.

Unfortunately, the burglar won't do much time, if at all. Depending on the value of the stolen items he'll probably do small time and be at it again. And when he gets back to doing it again he simply won't be stealing cell phones. And thus the cycle repeats with many more victims for years to come.

Hopefuly, he will learn that crime is not what its cracked up to be ad that there are other legitimate ways of earning a living, instead of instant gratification.
