Coachella Sleuths Track Down Pickpocket With More Than 100 Phones

Left Reinaldo De Jesus Henao right table with stolen cellphones

A NY man was arrested for allegedly stealing more than 100 cellphones at Coachella after tech-savvy festivalgoers tracked him down using "Find My iPhone".

"Some people inside the venue noticed that their phones were missing, so they used the app, you know, Find My iPhone, or however they were tracking it".

Reinaldo De Jesus Henao is seen in a photo released by the Indio Police Department on April 17, 2017.

Several cellphones were returned to victims, and others were left at lost and found, according to police. He was eventually detained by security and arrested by Indio Police officials. Those signals led the victims to Henao.

United: Airline won't use police to remove passengers
Video recorded by fellow passengers showed Dao on his back as security officers dragged him from the cabin of the parked plane. Munoz apologized on Tuesday, calling the episode "truly horrific", and pledged a full review by April 30.

While the insanely popular music festival draws huge crowds due to it's diverse line-ups, it also draws those looking to make some less-than-honest cash. This is a bitter reality for many Coachella attendees every year, but this weekend a lucky few were able to quickly find redemption thanks to the Find My iPhone feature.

Consider taking a dummy wallet with you because most thieves will not look for another once they have found the first one.

Festivalgoers use the flashlights on their phones as fake lighters during a set at Coachella on Saturday.

Spread your valuables out in several places instead of keeping them all in one spot.
