Google News is reporting that a man in the UK was arrested at his house and taken to a cell, where he was given a mobile phone, and then sent back to the UK where he could be charged with a criminal offence for using the device without a licence.
According to the report, the man, who is currently being held in a London jail, was found to have a mobile mobile phone with a SIM card in the device.
The report also alleges that the man’s phone was “a stolen cell phone, not a new one”.
“It appears to have been the victim’s stolen cell phones and not theirs, and he was told by the police that they were the same,” it reads.
The man’s friend, who has been identified as John, was arrested by the UK’s Home Office and was taken to the Crown Prosecution Service’s London headquarters for questioning.
According the report:John had been in touch with police to report the theft of his mobile phone and was then sent to the police station to be interrogated by officers.
John told the police he had been locked in his room with a phone and that his phone was stolen by a woman he had never met.
John said he had asked for his mobile to be returned but was told that it was not to be given to him.
“She said she was going to leave it for me and it was her cell phone so she had to go,” he said.
John was taken back to his cell where he told police he was going “to call his wife”.
John said that after he told his wife what had happened he was then taken to his room and told to lock his door.
“I said I would not do that.
I was trying to get the phone back, I was crying, I told her that it would be too dangerous for me to get my hands on the phone,” he told the court.”
The officers said to me that if I did not do what they told me I would be charged and I told them no, I would just go back to sleep and I was going back to my room.”
John told police that he was being held against his will and that he had no idea who was behind the break-in.
He said he did not know why the police had made him into a suspect.
He told the judge that he thought he was safe, because he was not “anybody’s friend”.
“I thought the police were not going to charge me,” he added.
John had asked that he be released immediately.
