Woman uses Find My Phone to apprehend thief and get her phone back
A San Francisco woman named Sarah Maguire woke up on Sunday morning only to find her iPhone and her roommate’s phone gone.
Sarah said the Find My Phone feature installed on her Apple smartphone notified her that her phone is 30 miles ago and pointed point blank in a location where her phone is.
She contacted the police and made her intentions known of finding her phone. The police allowed her, citing she should dial 911 if she feels threatened or find herself in trouble.
When Sarah Maguire reached the location where her iPhone was pointed out to be, she found out it’s an apartment and she knocked. A 30-year-old man appeared and Sarah told him how she knows her phone is inside his apartment.
A few threat sentences later, the man went back into the apartment and fetched Sarah’s handset. A few more threats later he disappeared and appeared with Sarah’s roomie’s handset.
Sarah hastily took the two phones, jumped into her car and fled the scene.
