It’s a well known fact to the tech community or maybe the apple community that the devices can be located, locked, or even wiped clean from anywhere by using Apple’s Find My iPhone feature. This feature extends to the iPad and now with the mountain lion release your desktop as well if you configure it correctly. However, this seems to be a feature that some criminals are in the dark about, for the second in as many weeks police in Maryland have located a stolen iPhone using this service. The first, of course is the case of the New York Times reporter David Pogue’s stolen phone in the case made famous over the internet. In that case authorities found the phone ditched in a backyard in Prince George’s county. The second case happened in Frederick, Maryland where a phone that was stolen from a vehicle parked outside the common market led police to the MARC train commuter parking lot behind the local Target where police found a running car with the door open and the suspect ducking behind two other cars in the lot. Turns out that the iPhone was not the only thing stolen, so was the car, another purse in the car that was stolen from the commuter lot, a GPS, and perhaps the cocaine that the suspect was carrying.
