Although the suspects haven’t been caught yet, the police can use these clues to catch them. The UPS said it’s working with law enforcement to investigate the theft. Usually, these postal services such as UPS, USPS tracking systems that transport mobile devices have their own tracking systems which should also help the investigations.
