Pair Accused of Stealing Cell Phone and Shotgun

CORPUS CHRISTI - A man who was robbed at gunpoint last night used the GPS locator on his stolen cell phone to track down the guys who robbed him.

The victim says he was approached by 20 year old Undrea Burton and 20 year old Jmelle Jackson.

He says Burton and Jackson asked him if he had any marijuana to sell. When the victim said 'no', one of the suspects pulled a gun and stole the victim's cell phone and a shotgun. They took off in a silver Audi.

Using the cell phone tracking device, the victim located that same car at an apartment complex on Alameda.

Corpus Christi police spoke with a man outside the complex who claimed his friends borrowed the car and they were still inside the apartment.

Officers arrested Burton and Jackson without any problems. The stolen gun and cell phone were also recovered.
