iPad Thieves Forget To Turn iCloud Off, Get Arrested After Taking Selfies
If you are going to be in the crime business, make sure to get your technology straight. Thieves today have to keep up with all the gadgets and gizmos out there if they want to steal them, because merely turning them on may land them in jail.
Two Houston thieves learned this lesson the hard way. On January 8, Dorian Walker-Gaines and Dillian Thompson noticed an unlocked car and decided to help themselves to whatever they found inside, which included an iPad, $5,000 and several other valuables.
When Stewart Schaefer, the owner of the car and the items, noticed he was robbed, he started checking his iCloud and also his Find My iPad app, which was unfortunately turned off shortly after the iPad was stolen.
Walker-Gaines and Thompson were smart enough to turn the app off, but they forgot to deal with iCloud. This is something they really should have thought of before they started taking selfies with the freshly stolen iPad. Schaefer notified the police as soon as he saw new photos being uploaded to his iCloud and the two thieves were identified and arrested.
Before they got arrested, though, Walker-Gaines and Thompson had fun with their loot for a while, and even made a YouTube video bragging about their hustle. The video shows the two, let’s put it bluntly, stupid thieves boasting about “what we get from a good night’s hustle” and fanning themselves with $100 bills, calling themselves “members of the money team.”
