iPod touch survives crime, car

Longtime TiPb reader and law enforcement officer, Mike, sent us this tale of a poor iPod touch that got caught up in a sordid tale of crime, survived being run over by a car, and lived to play music about it all.

Story after the break!

[Thanks Spanishcop!]

Early this morning I was patrolling when I heard my Sergeant call out a foot-pursuit. I responded to assist, 3 male subjects had left running on foot in different directions and my Sergeant was chasing one of then. One of the other suspects circled back and jumped into a Pontiac Grand Am and left the area just as I was about to arrive.

While checking the area, I found a lighter, evidence of drugs of abuse, and an iPod touch 8 gig.

What is funny (to me) and yet amazing... One of the suspects dropped the ipod when they saw my Sergeant arriving to their location. Then the one suspect that got into the Pontiac ran over the iPod touch with the front tire.

Amazingly... As you can see in the video the iPod touch still works. I was able to power it on and off. I recorded a short video to show it. Because it is password protected by the suspect I was not able to gain access to it. But I double clicked the home button and I was able to play music on it. So it appears it is in working order aside from some cosmetic issues.

It's a amazing that a car can run over it and still work.

Just thought I would share it.

Also I have never jail-broken my personal iphone... So I don't know what to expect... But The suspects iPod has an apple on power on that turns into a skull. I figure that it is jail broken.

Your more than welcome to share the story.

P.S.... NOTE TO SUSPECT: if you want your iPod touch back, come to the police department to claim it, and we can have a chat... You know who I am and where to get it.... lol.
