OCEAN CITY, Md.- Ocean City police say they snagged a cellphone thief with the victim's built-in cellphone GPS.
Police were called by the victims to the Seacrets Nightclub around 2:15 a.m. Sunday. The victims said three iPhones and credit cards had been stolen. Police said the victims tracked the phones using the GPS feature, Find My IPhone, to nearby Crystal Beach Hotel.
That is when one of the victims activated an alarm on the phone, which was heard coming from a hotel room, according to police.
Police entered the room where they said they found 42-year-old Stanley Harris, of Washington, D.C., with the stolen phones and wallets.
"Everything can be tracked nowadays," said Abu Kaba, of Ocean City. "There's a GPS in everything."
Kaba has the app on his phone. He said his biggest fear is getting this device stolen.
"I'd would be shocked, horrified, and I'd probably tear the place down until I find it."
If you do lose your phone, or a thief get's their hands on it, it's easy to find.
Harris has been charged with three counts of theft.
