Downfall of a Master Criminal

Ben, aged 18, was pleased with his new mobile phone. He had bought it in a pub for £3.75 from a chap he didn't know. When the phone had been stolen in a street robbery the previous day the victim had reported the theft to the police.
Ben had a call that evening from a stranger, offering him the chance to take part in a survey, get a free gift, and possibly win a cash prize. He gave the caller his name and address and date of birth. Unfortunately the caller was a police officer who dropped by a little later to arrest Ben, take his DNA and fingerprints, and charge him with handling.

We bailed him for a week to take legal advice.
