GPS in phone helps police track robbery suspects

BRIDGEPORT, CT (AP) -

Bridgeport police used the GPS tracking system in a stolen phone to help them find two robbery suspects.

The Connecticut Post reports the cell phone was taken from a clerk at the Pembroke Variety store during a hold-up on Tuesday.

Police spokesman William Kaempffer says the clerk had installed a tracking application on the phone, and officers used that software to locate the phone and their teen suspects in a house on East Main Street.

Eighteen-year-old Jaques Henderson and 19-year-old Glenn Pettway are charged with armed robbery. They are being held in lieu of $100,000 bond each and have a court appearance scheduled Thursday. It was not immediately clear if they have hired attorneys.
