New York resident, Reinaldo De Jesus Henao, was arrested at Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival after allegedly stealing more than 100 cellphones from revelers. Festival goers tracked Henao down using iPhone’s “Find My iPhone,” feature.
Police said Henao, 36, was arrested on festival grounds on Friday and found him in possession of the missing phones. He was charged with grand theft.
Several festival goers noticed that their cellphones were missing and activated their “Find My iPhone” feature, which provides users with the GPS location of their phones. Police then followed Henao though the venue and detained him. Officers said they found a backpack with more than 100 cellphones in Henao’s possession.
