Post GPS Phone Helps Catch Robbery Suspects 
http://www.thepittsburghchannel.com/news/20631440/detail.html

A PA man who was robbed of his Iphone and credit cards was able to activate the phone's GPS function and helped lead police to arrest the suspects who were using the stolen cards at a local Walmart store.

When officers showed up at the victim's home, he was simultaneously canceling his bank and credit cards, and using a computer to track the location of his cell phone through its GPS, police said.

The victim told police that his assailants stopped at a gas station in Homewood, withdrew $500 from an automated teller machine and bought $42.60 worth of gas with the victim's credit card, police said.

The victim relayed the perpetrators' movements as they traveled from there to a North Versailles Wal-Mart, then to a North Versailles Eat'n Park, police said.
