A Wardell woman was arrested for stealing after one of the victims used the ‘find my phone’ app to track down their stolen iPhone.

Police will allege that the 21-year-old woman broken into two vehicles at the Wardell Caravan Park and stole property in the early hours of September 12.

A short time later the woman broke into a cabin which was occupied by a sleeping victim. It is alleged that the woman has stolen an iphone and other property.

Police said the victim had a ‘find my phone’ app installed on the stolen phone, and was able to tell police where the phone was.

Ballina police then executed a search warrant at a Wardell address where they located the 21-year-old and the stolen property.

The 21 year old was charged with aggravated break, enter and steal, and two counts of steal from motor vehicle. Bail was refused.

Police said if the victim did not have a phone finder app installed on her phone police may not have been able to make the arrest and return the stolen property.
