Police found and arrested two armed robbers (one of whom shot an officer in the face to avoid arrest) thanks to a phone-tracking mobile application. The armed robbers entered a tavern and ordered staff to open the safe to steal the day’s takings. Aside from a bag of cash, they also unwittingly stole a mobile phone of one of the employees, which had the “find my phone” app on it. The phone owner activated the app from a computer, and the police managed to track the device (and the robbers carrying it) through a nearby park and back yards.
One of the robbers pleaded not guilty to the attempted murder of a police dog handler. Instead, he pleaded guilty to the lesser charge of malicious act with intent and denied he intended to kill the officer. However, this was not accepted by the crown. Besides, the robber also pleaded guilty to 3 counts of armed robbery.
During the trial, the prosecutor said that the robber shot the police dog handler from 4 meters after the criminals were cornered behind a garden shed. They had earlier brandished a machete and a rifle in the tavern after midnight, where they stole $40,000.
The police dog handler and his dog followed the robbers and eventually found them hiding behind a garden shed. After the officer warned the robbers to drop to the ground, one of them raised his gun and fired. The officer was hit by a bullet that entered his cheek and exited behind his ear. He dropped to the ground and fired off shots before calling for medical aid while his dog stood guard. The robbers were arrested shortly afterwards. In the meantime, the trial still continues and the sentence is yet to be known.
