Find My iPhone App Leads Cops to Crooks and Stolen Goods... Yet Again
The Find My iPhone app has helped recover many lost iPhones and helped catch many criminals in the past. The app worked its magic once again recently with Hollywood police along with the owner of a stolen iPhone using the free app to track down the device. In the process of retrieving the device, the police ended up nabbing four robbers in the process.
CBS Los Angeles
reported that an LAPD helicopter helped officers locate the thieves in a parked car on Santa Monica Boulevard recently. Inside the vehicle, cops found the phone in question along with a number of other devices and stolen wallets that the crooks had stolen over the past weekend. The fact that the crooks didnít think to turn the iPhone leads many to believe that they werenít exactly the smartest of criminals.
Many iOS owners have used the app to help retrieve their iOS devices, which continue to be in high demand by consumers and therefore amongst thieves as well. If you havenít already downloaded and installed the app, it may be a smart move considering how beneficial it has turned out for many since its release.
