A man smashed a case in a Springfield wireless store and escaped with several iPhones, but the scheme was foiled by one glaring oversight: The robber, police say, left his own Samsung Galaxy at the scene of the crime.
Fairfax County police arrested Travis Montgomery Snyder, 25, on Monday in Remington, Va., after tracing the phone’s subscription to him, according to a search warrant.
Surveillance footage from DMW Wireless in the 7000 block of Spring Garden Drive also showed a man matching Snyder’s description, according to a search warrant.
Police were called to scene Feb. 19 for a report of an alarm. When they arrived, they found a smashed glass display case and missing iPhones, according to a search warrant. Snyder’s phone was found inside the front door of the store, under broken glass.
No word on whether he was seeking an upgrade.
