Police Track Suspects Via Ipad After Home Invasion

MILLERSVILLE TENNESSEE: (Smokey Barn News) – Back on August 18th a Millersville man was robbed at gunpoint in his own garage.  That night around 9:00 p.m. Millersville Police received the report that a home invasion had just occurred on Walnut Ct  but by the time police arrived the suspects were gone.

The suspects escaped into the night with an iPad, iPhone 6, a gold/silver Rado wrist watch valued at $1600, a duffle bag containing clothes and shoes, sunglasses and a few other small items.

Normally for police a call like this would spell days of detective work and lots of man hours, unless you happen to be a fast thinking Detective by the name of Dustin Carr. Detective Carr’s quick thinking has meant that the expensive watch and iPad have been recovered.

How did Detective Carr do it? You guessed it, the iPad. Detective Car used a special app to track the iPad, the only problem, the iPad needed to be turned on, even for a minute would do the trick. It meant that Detective Carr and his partner Detective Robert Watson would have to manually ping the device over and over again in hopes that whoever had it would turn it on, even for a second was all the Detective needed to get a location.

Detective Carr’s diligence paid off because that is exactly what happened. The iPad was activated and the hunt was on. Within a short time Detective Carr not only had the iPad in his hands but that expensive watch too.

In the process of collecting the watch and iPad, Detective Carr also identified several possible suspects and in fact has taken one into custody. He is hopeful that the other two will follow suit shortly.

If you’ve ever lost a smart device or had one stolen it will be easy to believe that it would probably be gone forever. One can only imagine the delight the victim had to be reunited with his property. It also means the Millersville community can breathe a little easier knowing that Detective Carr is on-it.
