Text Messages Lead to Robbery Suspect
And this is why you don’t send text messages about robberies you’ve committed. A getaway driver sought in the April 12 mugging of two elderly women in Boca Raton was nabbed Thursday after cops executed a search warrant on his accomplice’s iPhone, police said.
Among the gems of data unearthed by investigators on accused mugger Adam Bardisa’s cell phone were texts to his alleged driver Michael Nicholas Russo, 19. In them, Bardisa, also 19, talks of his own mom seeing surveillance footage on the TV news of him robbing the two victims, who were 84 and 96 years old.
“Yo how bout my mom just me on the news on a scooter robbing 2 old ladies and there opening an investigation…Bro wtf!”, read the text, dated April 19.
Russo’s response was instructive.
