Coachella Sleuths Track Down Pickpocket With More Than 100 Phones

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.

Nokia 6 starts receiving Android 7.1.1 Nougat OTA
HMD Global may be planning to bring in some Nokia smartphones later this year, specifically by the end of the second quarter. The new Nougat version for the device weighs 369MB but needs at least 620MB free storage in order to install the update.

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.
