Phone call from 'Baby's momma' helps nab suspect

BAY CITY, Mich. (AP) — Thanks to a ringing cellphone with an incoming call from "Baby's momma," police in Michigan say they were able to track down a suspected robber.

Investigators in Bay City said a cellphone was found on the ground of a convenience store following a break-in last September. When it rang, officers glanced at the odd caller ID and answered the phone.

The female caller said the phone belonged to Kyle Schmiege but had recently been stolen. But during their investigation, police linked Schmiege to a February 2011 home burglary.

He pleaded guilty to second-degree home invasion. MLive.com reported Wednesday that the 20-year-old Schmiege was sentenced to between 23 months and 15 years in prison, with credit for about four months served.

Bay City is about 115 miles northwest of Detroit.
