Police: Man busted after trying to sell stolen phones on Twitter

LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- A Louisville man was arrested Monday after he was accused of theft back in January.

According to court documents, 19-year-old Jordan Robbins took a cell phone from a woman's pocket without her knowledge or permission.

Police said just two days later Robbins and another man went to a residence where the duo took two more phones that did not belong to them. Once the two victim's discovered their phones were missing, police said they tried to stop Robbins and the other man but couldn't - that's when the victim's filed a police report.

Robbins was later busted when he tweeted he had three phones for sale, police said, matching the description of the victims' stolen phones.

Police said Robbins admitted to taking the phones and told investigators he wanted to "make things right," but has yet to return any of the phones.

Robbins is charged with two counts of theft by unlawful taking.
