The man complied and later contacted police while looking up the location of his iPhone through its GPS system.

Through the use of GPS technology the police were able to determine the last few stops of the criminals as well as determine their exact location. The police were then able to arrest the three suspects at a local gas station. The suspects were identified as: Bryant Rather, Brent Ray Potter, Myron Knox Jr.,  all age 22.
