  • Find My iPhone App Finds Drugs, Guns, and Criminals for Marietta Police

    Marietta, known for it's diner and apparently stupid criminals

    Earlier this week Marietta Police made a large narcotics bust at the Autumn View Apartments on Franklin Road outside of Atlanta, Georgia. Their big lead? A stolen iPhone and the Find My iPhone app.

    A guest in a nearby hotel reported his iPhone stolen and with permission police used the “Find My iPhone App” to locate the man’s phone. Officers tracked the phone to a nearby apartment complex. Once there “the smell of pot led officers to one unit.”

    A search warrant turned up the goodies picture above which include 1,100 grams of marijuana, what appears to be an AK-47 or a similar assault rifle, five handguns (three of them stolen), and dozens of Oxycodone tablets. Officers made several arrests including one suspect who tried to jump off an upper balcony.

    Who would have thought Apple’s app for the forgetful would turn into a “Find Drugs, Guns, and Money” app for police. Criminals just need to exercise more caution with the phone’s they steal or turn the phone off or at least turn off location services and WiFi.

      I never see them write out the quantities in grams for amounts that large. And no, I'm not a smoker.

      Makes it sound more serious than 2.5 pounds I guess... Or they just didn't have access to a calculator.. In any case this is one ******* hilarious article.

      Don't you all know XBOX 360 games are 100 times more fun when you're high? That's why every drug dealers house has one!

      In proper vice-ese it would be more proper to say, "just over a 'kilo' of marijuana was confiscated". :-) Saying 1100 grams is stupid- kinda like measuring road distance in centimeters.

      If they really wanted to be anal about it, they can track the serial# and udid of the phone and when it's activated in any network it pops up as stolen. But that's another thread.

      I am so very happy that you have taken the time to tell the crooks how to defeat the find my iPhone app. You should be congratulated. I shall certainly keep that in mind if I ever want to steal yours.

      Thanks Phillip for telling all those criminals out there how to disable the tracking on our iDevices. Almost makes me wish yours gets stolen and they turn off the phone or wifi and localization.

      LMAO whats with the 360!? Evidence... Really?? maybe it was running LT+ and the dogs sniffed out the plastic DL's also LOL.

      "Makes it sound more serious than 2.5 pounds I guess... Or they just didn't have access to a calculator.."

      Or bragging that they found 2.5 pounds of marijuana sounds like change they found in the couch cushion. THAT charge will be dismissed lol

      It doesn't install anything to track your phone it is just a website. There is no need to install on your PC.

      I'm sure this website is the first stop for criminals learning how to successfully steal iPhones.
