Attempt to unlock stolen phone caught on camera

The Argus: Sussex Police have issued the picture of this woman who was attempting to unlock an iPhone stolen from Coalition nightclub in Kings Road, Brighton Sussex Police have issued the picture of this woman who was attempting to unlock an iPhone stolen from Coalition nightclub in Kings Road, Brighton

A mobile phone ower received a picture of the new user of his stolen iPhone thanks to a security app igotya.com.

Sussex Police have issued the picture of this woman who was attempting to unlock an iPhone stolen from Coalition nightclub in Kings Road, Brighton earlier this month.

Officers are now keen to speak to the woman in a bid to return the phone to its rightful owner and track down those responsible for stealing it.

PC Gavin Crute said: "The owner of the camera has a rather cool app that takes a picture of anyone who tries to unlock it, maps their current location and then sends all the info back to the owner in an e-mail.

"We know where and when the photo was taken and it appears to be in a vehicle with quite a large sunroof.

“We don't know that the woman is the person who stole the camera, but she obviously has had some connection with it in the meantime and I'd like to speak to her about it."

If you are the woman in the photo or you recognise her, please contact Sussex Police on 101 quoting serial 1389 of 04/12.

Bravo to the police and Argus for taking the step of showing her picture. An unusually sensible step. By the way - for Android phones, search for Cerberus (though there's many alternatives). It also sends GPS co-ordinates of where such pictures of the thieves was taken.

Unfortunately, the iGotYa app is not ‘approved’ by apple so cannot be downloaded to an iPhone without ‘jailbreaking’ it.

Why would you want to take an overpriced hand held into a night club anyway? It's supposed to be a social event, unless browsing social media sites is the new 'socialising'....
