On Friday, a NY man was arrested after allegedly stealing more than 100 cell phones from concert attendees making one of the craziest crimes ever committed at his music festival. Numerous victims followed Henao through the venue until security detained him.
During the festival, multiple attendees noticed their phones were missing and started using the Find My iPhone feature to track them down. When people began to notice their phones were missing, many made a decision to enlist the help of their respective "find my phone" service.
Stealing phones at Coachella is nothing new. "[The police] took over from there after security had him detained".
The note of caution follows the arrest of a man stopped with more than 100 cellphones in his backpack on Friday, the opening of the festival's first weekend.
A thief who swiped more than 100 mobile phones from revellers at Coachella festival in California was collared after festival-goers used tracking apps to hunt him down. "They turn in phones they find, wallets with cash in them". Henao has been arrested and charged with Grand Theft and Possession of Stolen Property. Records from the Correctional Facility in Banning indicated Henao was released after posting $10,000 bail on Saturday. Some of them have been returned to their owners a few hours later, but the majority of the devices were turned over to the festival's Lost and Found service, where they can be picked up.
