This had to happen: Periscope stream leads to burglary suspects

We all scream for ice cream, but somebody live-streamed while boosting a batch from a truck in Utah this week, according to local news reports.

Police tracked down two juveniles who confessed to the burglary after posting video on Periscope, according to standard.net:

Juveniles caught in ice cream truck burglary after posting video on Periscope

ksl.com reported:

Investigators said both teens admitted to stealing the ice cream and randomly placing the tubs of ice cream on neighbors’ front porches as gifts.

I recently shared that police in India are asking citizens to “report and record crimes using the live-streaming app,” but it would really be easier if perpetrators shared their own crimes in progress.
