Mobile Phone Soon Returned

A thief managed to remove an expensive phone from an Irish tourist's handbag whilst she was on holiday in Granada. Two hours later, the police recovered her phone.

GRA Policia NacionalThe police came across a 28-year-old man, a known bad lad with an impressive charge sheet, in the north of the city (veritable Apache territory) and questioned him. They searched him and found a phone in his back pocket.

He said that it was his but when asked to open the phone, he obviously didn’t know how to; i.e., didn’t know the pin code. He then changed his story to that of his having found it.

They took the phone in to the police station where they found out that only two hours earlier that same afternoon a young Irish lass had reported that her phone had been stolen.

She had also given the description of the person that she thought may have lifted it from her bag, which fitted that of the man who had her phone in his possession.

She was on a school trip (it’s not clear whether she was a student or an accompanying teacher) and was visiting some gardens in the city with her travel group when the police approached her with her telephone – she was surprised, to say the least.
