Reports of cell phone thefts rocketing
CINCINNATI (WKRC) -- The number of smart phone thefts is sky-rocketing.
About 3.1 million Americans had their phones stolen last year, according to a new survey by Consumer Reports. That's nearly double the magazine's estimate of phones stolen during 2012.
The results come on the heels of the announcement of phone "kill switches." It allows the owner of a phone to disable the device remotely if it gets stolen.
