Parolee's crime wave foiled by GPS anklet

Darren Murph

For most of us level-headed citizens, we'd probably straighten up our act if a GPS bracelet was strapped onto us by the boys in blue, but for a certain Southern California parolee, his skewed judgment recently got the best of him. Just months after a pilot program was instituted to hopefully deter ex-gang members from committing more crimes, police were able to easily track down and apprehend a 37-year old who was eventually arrested on suspicion of armed robbery and parole violations. San Bernardino police Lt. Scott Paterson was quoted as saying that "you'd think somebody with a bracelet wouldn't do anything," but apparently, there's more than a few individuals who just don't mind learning life's toughest lessons the hard way.
