Wanted – have you seen this MAC address: f8:e0:79:af:57:eb? German cops appeal for logs in bomb probe

Timbo

Surely all the plods need to do is to contact the mobile phone operator and get the logs of the MAC address over the last say 3-6 months.

They should then have time-based location information and that should pinpoint when and where the phone has been kept (esp overnight) ? That should be enough to narrow down where the perp lives and charges their phone (probably overnight, like most people !).
