Bet the guy was shocked when he was arrested so quick

A police spokesman said the 20-year-old man allegedly broke into a Yangebup home, in Perth's southern suburbs, at about 2am (WST), and stole the keys to a luxury Holden Calais car.
The owner of the $55,000 car contacted the manufacturer, who activated the vehicle's global positioning system (GPS), the spokesman said.
Police tracked the vehicle to an address in the southern suburb of White Gum Valley and found the car parked on the front lawn.

"They" know where you are if you are driving a GM car with "ONSTAR" but did you realize that "they" can also locate you if you have a cell phone? Many people don't realize that a cell phone can used to find your position within several hundred yards -- or even less. Of course, this is great if your car is stolen or if you are missing. Your car can be located or, if you yourself have gone missing, it's nice to know that you can be found (provided your cell phone is "on") but it does raise issues of privacy and the spectre of "big brother" grows considerably given this knowledge.
