Plugged in Phone Leads To Arrest of One of Nevada County’s Most Wanted

Two suspects learned that it doesn’t pay to plug in a phone without permission and taking toiletries isn’t a good idea if you have a record or warrants for your arrest. A woman sitting in front of the Safeway on Sutton Way had plugged her phone into an outlet on the outside of the store. According to Lt. Alex Gammelgard, there had been a number of thefts and other issues in the area so a Grass Valley Police officer approached the woman and asked for her identification. Apparently she did not provide the correct ID.

I heard a while back that the homeless are given free cell phones. So, where are they supposed to charge them? Of course it would lead to stealing electricity.
