Texas Cops Catch Guy Who Tried To Get Away On Electric Scooter

January 28, 2019

The great thing about technology is that it make it so much easier to catch dumb criminals.

Luca Mangiarano, 19, was arrested in connection with a bank robbery that happened on December 18, 2018 at a bank in Austin, Texas. Apparently when Mangiarano got the cash from the teller he ran outside and escaped on an e-scooter. Anyone who's used one of those knows that in order to use it, you have to have an account that links to a credit card and phone number.

All police had to do was send a subpoena to Uber (the company that owns the scooters) to get the guy’s info, and now Luca's sitting in jail.
