Smart Phone App Leads Police To Accused Thief

MURFREESBORO, Tenn. - Police said a woman's stolen iPhone led them to the arrest of an accused thief.  They recovered the phone and much more.

"I was kind of amazed.  I knew it could do that and I was amazed I got my phone back," said Susan Heller, the theft victim.

Someone stole Heller's iPhone out of her car and she activated her "Find My Phone" app. It then led her and police to the suspect Chris Bryson who was arrested and charged with burglary.

A search of his car turned up much more than just the stolen phone.

"The simple theft of an iPhone led detectives to something much larger," said Kyle Evans with the Murfreesboro Police Dept.

Evidence photos show police confiscated handcuffs, a gun, a badge, prescription drugs, thousand in electronics and several wallets.

For now Bryson is charged only in connection with the theft of the phone.  But police are doing an inventory on the other items recovered and additional charges may follow.
