Crime does not pay. Unless, of course, you're not stupid and really good at it.

But Horatio Toure is no criminal mastermind.

Toure became infamous recently just by stealing an iPhone in San Francisco - during a security test involving the GPS tracking device placed in the phone.

According to San Francisco police, the 31-year-old city resident rode a bicycle up to a woman in the South of Market neighborhood, snatched an iPhone out of her hands, and then pedaled away without a care. But the woman that was victimized was carrying the phone as part of a company's demonstration of a real-time GPS tracking program.

In fact, if the crook had bothered to look at the phone's screen while riding, he would have seen himself traveling across a map of San Francisco.

Toure was captured a half-mile away about 10 minutes later, according to Sgt. Troy Dangerfield. He was booked into jail on suspicion of grand theft and possession of stolen property.
