A bluetooth enabled crimewave

Mobile phones

Uh-oh. According to the South Manchester Reporter, thieves have begun to use bluetooth phones as a way of finding expensive laptops and cellphones in parked cars. Local police claim that 20 recent thefts have been carried out by crooks strolling around with bluetooth enabled phones to find expensive laptops. Police claim that there have been twenty bluetooth thefts. Although how they figured that out is beyond me. Well a simple way of avoiding this type of crime would be to not leave your bluetooth enabled gear in your car, I guess.

  • Unless the laptop was on, I don’t see how they could detect them?

    Or maybe I’m missing something?
