The Denver Police Fugitive Unit arrested a man who was identified as a robber in several convenience store crimes, thanks to the fact that he wore his GPS ankle monitor to the first robbery, police claim.
Police say a pre-trial services officer saw a crime bulletin with photos of a suspect committing several robberies and recognized the suspected robber as one of the people she supervises.
They later learned Lawrence Lowe, 22, was on pretrial release and was waiting the outcome of a second-degree attempted murder case in Arapahoe County. The U.S. Marshals also have a hold on him for a federal case of possessing a dangerous weapon.
Police pulled the GPS data for Lowe’s ankle monitor and claim it showed Lowe was inside the store at the time it was robbed on March 10.
