You must always plan before you take a major leap! this includes robbing a Radio Shack for over $17,000 and then using one of the GPS systems that you stole to assist you with getting away.

A Chicago man accused of robbing a South Side Radio Shack of $17,000 Friday night was hastily tracked down and arrested after being incriminated by GPS equipment in the merchandise he stole

Assistant State’s Attorney Wendy Caceres said Raymond Jefferson, 20, threatened the victims with a handgun, tied them up and took their cell phones before swiping handfuls of electronics from the shelf.

Some of the stolen items were tattletales, though, leading police officers right to Jefferson two hours later.

Jefferson was arrested in the 3700 block of West Lawrence Avenue in the Albany Park neighborhood for armed robbery and aggravated kidnapping, according to Cook County Judge Maria Kuriakos Ciesil.

Jefferson was later identified by witnesses as the man who robbed the store in the 2300 block of West 95th Street in Chicago’s Beverly neighborhood, Caceres said.
