Cybercrime is flourishing because some criminals are among the most tech-savvy people on the planet, but it seems some petty thieves still have a lot to learn.

 

In particular, Torbay teenager Jake Ormerod, who got nabbed for stealing a cabbie’s mobile after using it to call a taxi.

 

The 18-year-old dialled victim Don Smith’s firm and the number was recognised by the controller. Ormerod was picked up shortly afterwards, by the the police.
