Facebook Live helps identify mobile thieves in Malaysia

 

 

Here’s one more of those cases where technology can help police identify criminals. During the celebrations of the Hari Raya Haji, a Muslim-celebrated feast of sacrifice, a man was broadcasting his neighborhood in Malaysia using Facebook Live when his cell phone was stolen by two thieves on a motorcycle.

The information is from the New Straits Times website.

According to information posted on the site last Saturday (2), the criminals had their faces recorded during the transmission, which continued rolling for some time. Luckily for the man who had his device stolen, the 78-second video ended up viralizing on Facebook, helping to show what had happened.

However, local police have pointed out that the owner of the mobile phone did not file the case to the authorities, and so far local defense forces have yet to confirm the names of the thieves who appear in the video.

Always be alert: keep an eye on what happens in your surroundings whenever you are filming or taking a picture of something

Another important detail is that this does not mean that the owner of the smartphone will get the device back; but at least proves that in such cases, the network can unite to try to unravel the identity of some criminals.
In any case, there is always the alert: keep an eye on what happens in your surroundings whenever you are filming or taking a picture of something.
