STAMFORD, Conn. – A 25-year-old Stamford man apparently picked on the wrong person when, police said, he stole a city man’s cell phone, according to a report in the Stamford Advocate.

Police said that Carlos Anariba – who now faces larceny and attempted larceny charges – tried to drive off in the victim’s luxury automobile at a gas station, but was caught in the act and only escaped with the man's phone, the Stamford Advocate story said.

Police said the man used a tracking app to literally hunt Anariba down and, with the help of a passing cop, managed to get him arrested, the Stamford Advocate reported.
