When you are "dropping the kids off at the pool", you can do some online shopping.
A cell phone could also save your life if you are ever stranded on a deserted island - for FIVE days!
The one glaring exception to the Cell Phones Are the Shiznit Rule is when tripping the light fantastic - you know, dancing the Horizontal Hula.
Oh, yeah.....and when discussing the felony you just commited.
Especially when the police are listening to your conversation. And recording it!
This is exactly what happened when Aaron and Yvonne burglarized a Roswell, New Mexico
Here's a partial transcript from the Roswell P D recording:
“I know we should have gotten a lot more, but you know what, my only thing is that we got away safe, clean,” one of the suspects said.
At one point, the song “Wanted Dead or Alive” by Bon Jovi could be heard playing in the background.
In another snippet of the call, one of the suspects said: “We rolled over to Hervey Street and took it out of the [expletive] house.”
On the surface, this seems just like any phone call made by any criminal that the cops might be monitoring. The big difference is that the Bad Guys here made this phone call themselves!
By butt-dialing 9-1-1!
This went on for forty-five minutes!
The Fuzz then did some Outstanding Police Work by using cell phone towers to locate the Bad Guys and pull them over.
Once detained, Aaron the Male Bad Guy insisted that the police were mistaken and that it wasn't his cell phone they (the cops) heard the details of the burglary on. Aaron told the Heat that what they heard came from an adjacent car and the occupants of the adjacent car were talking really loud!
This little white lie went over like a green turd in a punch bowl.
Aaron and Yvonne are in jail awaiting trial.
