Wow, a stupid criminal in Virginia really wanted to upgrade to an iPhone. According to the Washington Post, authorities in Fairfax County, Virginia recently arrested 25-year-old Travis Montgomery Snyder on suspicion of burglarizing a local cell phone store in February. And Snyder didn’t exactly make it tough for law enforcement to track him down. Along with surveillance footage that showed a man matching his description inside the store, he accidentally left his own Samsung Galaxy at the crime scene:
Police were called to scene Feb. 19 for a report of an alarm. When they arrived, they found a smashed glass display case and missing iPhones, according to a search warrant. Snyder’s phone was found inside the front door of the store, under broken glass.I guess Samsung’s latest commercial didn’t exactly persuade Snyder to stick with the company.
