Even if there are records available to confirm it, it's a pretty fishy
alibi. So somebody at his mother's house was using his cell phone
when a bank 40 miles away was being robbed. "Here Mom, take this
phone ... and call me in about an hour."

[TELECOM Digest Editor's Note: Except that if the records are
available it should be easy enough to find out _who_ the conversation
was with, how long it lasted, and who was on each end of the line. PAT]
