Read what officers and news sources are saying about how we’ve made a difference while partnering with police, legislators, and technology leaders to improve cell phone safety and combat mobile device theft.
Robbery Suspect Identified Via ecoATM
GA-based Fox affiliate WAGA yesterday reported that police in Norcross identified a robbery suspect after a stolen cell phone was sold at an ecoATM kiosk in DeKalb County. Images captured at the ecoATM kiosk led detectives to identify Arquial Dotson, who has not been apprehended, as one of two suspects in an armed robbery at an apartment complex on October 7.
Fox added that it received an email from ecoATM explaining that "In the case where [a stolen device] does make its way into our kiosk, we provide police and local law enforcement with the evidence they need to prosecute the people and return the stolen property to the victim,” ecoATM added.
"On a related note, I must say that working with ecoATM has been a wonderful experience. The most I’ve had to wait for recovered property has been two business days. My office’s prosecution rate where ecoATM has provided information has been 100%! Makes my job so much easier! Keep up the good work!"
