Amazon Alexa Catches Florida Thief Robbing Elderly Patient

January 10, 2020

I've never wanted a smart speaker (because you know, spying) but this might make me change my mind.  Amazon Alexa just stopped a robbery at an Ormond Beach assisted living facility!

A guy named Russell Bannister entered a resident's room at the elderly living facility "without consent or knowledge" according to News Journal Online and Alexa alerted the resident's family.  

They arrrived at the facility, confronted the guy, and called police.  He was arrested in the video below.

Good job Alexa.  Maybe you're not trying to wipe out the human race afterall...
