What would you do if you stole someone's iPhone and they tried to get it back? Hypothetically, of course. Your first move probably wouldn't be what an alleged Seattle phone thief did when she tried to report her victim to the police.
After allegedly stealing a 21-year-old man's phone while he slept on a bus, the man woke up and accused her of stealing his phone. It turns out that he wasn't sleeping, just listening to music with his eyes closed. When the music cut off, the victim saw the phone thief holding his phone. He followed the thief and her boyfriend off of the bus, refusing to let her out of his sight.
She called the police, claiming that her victim was "following her and refusing to leave her alone." What she didn't expect was that the police responder would notice her victim's phone in one of her pockets.
According to The Verge, the thief was arrested for robbery and possession of three grams of crack. It's good to see that this misuse of justice didn't work out for a criminal.
