Apple fanatic NYPD cop gets back stolen Apple iPhone in record time
Wasting no time, the officer took out his Apple iPhone, loaded up the Find my iPhone app and punched in the victim's Apple ID number. Quickly, the officer was able to lock in on the suspect about 10 blocks away. Garland and his partner started up their patrol car and followed the suspect to a supermarket, the Food Emporium. Officer Garland pressed the "play sound" button on the app and instantly a pinging sound could be heard coming from a man outside the store, about 20 feet away from the officers.
Officers Garland and Coan along with two other policemen made the bust. 40 year old George Bradshaw was arrested and the Apple iPhone returned to the proper owner. Amazingly, the whole thing took only 30 minutes. Had Bradshaw been as knowledgeable about Apple as Officer Garland, he could have disabled the iCloud trace and would have been able to make a clean getaway. Instead, Bradshaw was charged with robbery and possession of stolen property.
