Mugged Shadyside man tracks suspects by GPS

A technology win from the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review:

Rather and Potter emptied the victim’s pockets of his cell phone and wallet and told the victim to “get out of here,” police said.

The victim ran off while Rather and Potter headed toward Fifth Avenue, police said.

When officers showed up at the victim’s home, he was simultaneously canceling his bank and credit cards, and using a computer to track the location of his cell phone through its GPS, police said.
