Then, they allegedly registered some of the stolen devices using IP addresses located at Soto's home in Northridge, Los Angeles. Additionally, the cops traced the alleged crooks' mobile devices to several of the hijacked cargo trucks' locations.

If the above is true then I do hope none of them are wondering why they were caught. I know cellphone networks will provide which cellphones were in an area switched on to law enforcement agencies. The criminals might be regretting the fact they didn’t know this. If it’s a rural location then they’ll stick out like a sore thumb, owing to the probably limited numbers of cellphones nearby.
