or...they could leave their cellphones at home when they’re up to no good.
When I worked with the law enforcement relations part of my cell company I used to tell people, if you’re going to abduct a child, make sure you leave your cell phone at home.
BTW, for drug dealers it’s all about throw away pre-pay phones.
It was just the sex offender taking advantage of a situation -- an attractive blonde riding bicycle late at night.
According to reports, the rear wheel of the bicycle was damaged. So he had to get rid of the bicycle, which was found, and Louisiana State Police can place his vehicle at the scene of where the bicycle was recovered.
He still had to travel from Louisiana to Texas to stage his truck being stolen.
He probably had his cell phone with him -- especially if he was going to report his truck stolen.
And he may have taken his cell phone with him to dispose of the body -- however that was done.
Modern GPS work just fine. The strap containes wires that notifies probation if the strap is cut. No such guarantee with a cell phone.
