A gunman was tracked hundreds of miles in about half a day by local law enforcement by using his cellphone signal.
"Police said they used the signal from Rivas' cell phone to track him."
Not the FBI, or Homeland Security, but local law enforcement.
Do you feel safer?
Turns out the U.S Marshall's called his cell from a number the perp thought safe, so at least he had to turn it on before being tracked.
Pretty clever and not as nefarious as I thought....
