Coachella attendees help nab phone theft suspect using 'Find My iPhone'

But, they then started tracking their devices using the Find My iPhone and all the phones pointed towards Reinaldo de Jesus Henao, a 36-year old man from NY.

On Friday, a NY man was arrested after allegedly stealing more than 100 cell phones from concert attendees making one of the craziest crimes ever committed at his music festival. "People started using the "Find My Phone" feature on their phones and sure enough-people spotted a dot going through the tent, and they alerted authorities".

Stealing phones at Coachella is nothing new. Police ID'd the man as Reinaldo De Jesus Henao and found 100 cellphones in his backpack. One thing led to another, and when police officers from the Indio Police Department arrived on scene shortly thereafter, over 100 cellphones were discovered floating around in Henao's backpack.

More than 100,000 people attend the Coachella festival in California, but not everyone is there to have a good time.

Henao was arrested and charged on suspicion of grand theft and receiving stolen property. Indio police Sgt. Dan Marshall said Henao's plan was foiled thanks to the Apple app. He was released after posting $10,000 bail, according to inmate records.

In light of the alleged mass phone theft, local police have reminded Coachella attendees to take extra precautions when it comes to securing their personal belongings.

The department worked through the weekend to reunite the stolen phones with their owners.

"Glad to have my phone back, so glad.ugh", said Laura Hunt Little.
