A couple of suspected robbers left a digital trail of footsteps that led police right to their door. Twenty-three-year-old Steven Mattson and 27-year-old Robert McCraney were burned by a Kindle Fire.
They’re accused of robbing a cabbie in southwest Omaha last week.
A Happy Cab driver told police that he gave two men a ride and they robbed him at gunpoint at 129th and Q. The crooks took his wallet, $160-dollars, a Kindle Fire and the company computer.
According to court documents, investigators tracked the GPS of the driver's tablet to a specific apartment complex. A search warrant led to the discovery of the cabbie’s wallet in the suspects’ apartment. McCraney and Mattson were arrested.
According to the paperwork from the courts, McCraney told police that the gun involved was not real and that it was tucked in the couch under the mattress.
Police located a pellet gun in the apartment.
