A daring car thief who stole a Mercedes Benz from a Borrowdale house loaded with groceries in the boot, made his arrest rather easy when at the last moment he added an iPhone 7 to his loot.
Daniel Mutedza (34) possibly did not know that iPhones are easy to track. Police tracked and recovered the phone and the Benz when they arrested the suspect in Budiriro, National police spokesman Asst Comm Paul Nyathi said yesterday. Mutedza will appear in court soon.
