Police officers take food very seriously, so if you rip off one of their favorite eateries expect to have the full force of the law brought down upon you, even if all you stole were wings and sub sandwiches.
A hungry crook in Annapolis, Maryland stole 15 chicken wings and 3 sub sandwiches (total value $56.77) from a pizza shop employee on a delivery run and the police are now under fire for using a Stingray phone tracker to hunt the thief.
The Stingray is a small device that acts like a portable cell phone tower, allowing police officers to capture info from nearby mobile devices and therefore tramples all over our right to privacy.
This device is typically only used to track terrorists, and yet the Baltimore police department has used it more than 4,300 times since 2007, which is causing some courtroom controversy in Maryland.
The Annapolis police didn't catch the sandwich thief, so using a Stingray was not only an abuse of their power- it was one of the most expensive operations ever mounted to catch a guy who stole some wings and subs.
