Phonecam helps foil alleged child kidnapping attempt

Police say a 15-year-old boy foiled an abduction attempt by pulling out a phonecam and snapping photos of a man trying to lure him into a car, as well as the alleged abductor’s license plates:

“The teen gave the evidence to police, who arrested a suspect the next day. “It’s surprising the kid had the presence of mind to use the technology under duress,” Det. Capt. Robert Rowan told The Record of Bergen County. A spokeswoman for Sprint, whose phone the boy used, said she had never heard of someone using the new technology to catch a criminal.”
