AMITYVILLE, N.Y. -- Police arrested a man on suspicion of stealing a GPS receiver after the device apparently gave him away.

Amityville police said they stopped a 33-year-old man Saturday after they spotted him trying to ride a bicycle while carrying several items, including a car GPS unit.

Police said when the officer pressed the home button on the GPS, it displayed a nearby address. The resident of that home told police the device was his.
