Child Uses Find My iPhone To Recover Stolen Items

Landon Crabtree

Thanks to modern technology, now thieves cannot get away easily by stealing something.

You would never want a thief to get away if he has stolen from your house. Same thing goes for 8 year old Landon Crabtree.

After a burglar broke into Crabtree family’s house to get away with the family’s iPad and a few other items, the family got insurance money for the lost goods. But Landon did not want someone else having and using his iPad. He used Apple’s free Find my iPhone to recover the iPad. However, that is not the only thing police found.

Using the address found with Find my iPhone, police were lead to a hotel where the thief stashed his loot. Along with Landon’s iPad, cops found $350,000 worth of items, from a string of roughly 100 burglaries.

It is awesome to see this clever little 8 year old save the day. Everyone should have Find My iPhone installed in your iDevice. Landon and his family were interviewed by MSNBC too.
