He was then arrested but the phone could not be traced in what was said as a trick to conceal evidence.

After pleading to the charges, the magistrate ruled thus: “It is sad that one cannot confidently communicate with their phone without worrying it will be stolen. I therefore sentence you to six months imprisonment to remove one thief from the streets.”
