A man suspected of stealing an iPhone was arrested after the owners used an application to trace the device.
When Amy Petty realized her purse had been snatched from her Union City, Tenn. home on Monday, her husband, Todd Petty, got online.
The couple told WPSD-TV that Todd Petty used an app designed to locate the phone if it gets lost and found it was only a few blocks away.
They called police who said 23-year-old Wesley Coleman threw down the phone and ran away when they approached him.
Coleman was jailed on $50,000 bond and scheduled for a preliminary hearing on Thursday.
He is charged with theft and burglary. Police said they have also linked Coleman to a break-in where a gun was stolen and he could face additional charges.
