A quick-thinking woman has had her stolen laptop, iPod and iPad returned after she detected the iPad being used nearby.
Last month the woman started spotting photographs of unknown people being streamed to her online iCloud account, which was connected to her stolen iPad, and reported it to police.
On Friday (2 August), she was at a supermarket in Lismore where she recognised the woman in the photographs.
The victim immediately telephoned police who came to the store and questioned the woman from the photographs about the stolen property.
They later went to her home where they spoke to her 35-year-old male partner and located the property inside the house along with numerous other items suspected of being stolen.
The man was arrested and taken to Lismore Police Station where he was interviewed. He was charged with stolen goods in custody and supplying a prohibited drug.
Investigations are continuing.
Police recommend activating applications such as ‘iCloud’ and ‘Find my iPhone’ as they have proved extremely valuable in locating stolen property.
