Did he pay cash or card? get caught on a security camera at the point of sale at time of sale holding said phone? buy it on the internet? It's pretty easy now to be found.

I tried to buy a burner phone in france once and they wouldn't sell it to me because I didn't have a permanent address. (one month business trip).

Sure, but then the telco has access to your CTT location data from the phone, not to mention all the metadata of the people you're calling and texting...not too hard to figure out who owns the phone from there, especially if you carry the phone alongside another one.

I'm pretty sure the idea of a burner phone is you're supposed to burn it. If you're gonna continue to carry it, well that's just stupid.
