I'm not really sure how often this happens, but it comes to my attention from time to time when I am reading police reports early in the morning. I spotted this one today. The victim was out and about downtown celebrating the New Year, and lost track her cell phone. Fortunately, she must have had a good strong charge on her battery, because when she got up the next morning, she tracked it with Find My iPhone to the area of 12th & K Street. She had no recollection of being in that vicinity, and she filed an online report of its loss on the police department's web site. I wish she had just called, but the good news is that the duty commander, Capt. Bob Farber spotted the report in his queue:
On 1-2-15, I reviewed the Incident Report on this case and called the contact number for the victim. While on the phone with the victim's father I had the father take a screen shot showing the location where his daughter's missing iPhone was and then asked him to text me the screen shot so that I could see where exactly the app was showing their daughters lost or stolen iPhone was. The screen shot was texted to the LPD Duty Command Cell phone.
The screen shot showed the phone was in the middle of the parking lot located at 1234 K St. While talking on the phone Sgt Kocian went to the parking lot and found the victim's missing iPhone. The following items belonging to the victim were recovered.
White Apple iPhone
Blue Targus iPhone case
UNL STUDENT ID CARD
WELLS FARGO DEBIT CARD
UNL STUDENT HOUSING ID CARD
