Stolen Cell Phone Found By Using GPS Tracking App

January 12, 2012

A man was arrested and charged with possession of stolen property after the owner of a cell phone tracked it to a residence in Sacramento, California.

According to reports from KCRA, a news station in Sacramento, the unidentified victim reported his cell phone stolen through an online reporting form but then decided to take matters into his own hands by using the GPS tracking feature on his phone.

The app took the victim, and later police, to the 2900 block of Azevedo Drive where the phone was found and the suspect was arrested.

This is just another example of how stupid thieves can be to steal cell phones, especially smartphones with GPS in them.
