A Police officer in New York used his own iPhone to catch a thief and retrieve a victim’s iPhone after she was robbed in a handbag store on Thursday night. A man walked into the store brandishing a black handgun and took the woman’s iPhone.
There have been many other reported cases of iPhones being recovered in this way however you do need to use a bit of caution before reprimanding a suspect. Best off leaving it to the police, especially with officers like Robert Garland on your side!
