• GPS in empty, stolen iPhone box leads police to Walmart theft suspects

    Updated:

    BROKEN ARROW, Okla. - A tracking device tucked into an empty cellphone box led police right to a pair of suspects accused of stealing it from a Broken Arrow Walmart.

    Police said brothers Sammy and Christopher Lee walked out of a Walmart store with Beats headphones, an Xbox, speaker and an iPhone box. It amounted to over a thousand dollars in stolen merchandise.

    One of the men worked on gathering the items while the other tried to distract employees, investigators said.

    Police later received an alarm call from a company that monitors security for Walmart. The GPS information from the tracker was used to locate what was taken.

    Not only did the iPhone box have a tracker in it, there was never a phone in the first place. Just a note that said, “hold for customer.”

    Once the brothers arrived home, police were not too far behind.
