Teen Myspace Purse SnatcherYudelka Polanco, a 16-year old NYC resident was mugged while commuting one day. Included in the snatching was her cell phone. The mugger, the idiot that he is, used the cell phone to make calls and send emails. Prior to receiving a new cell phone, Polanco’s provider sync’d up her new handset with the account. Contained in her history was the mugger’s email address. She quickly searched for the email address on Myspace. There was a match, but the assailant’s profile was set to ‘private’. Polanco, the sleuth that she is, had a friend message the purse snatcher to get on his good side and subsequently his friend’s list. With evidence in hand, the police arrested 16-year old Victor Hernandez.
