A STOLEN mobile phone was found in just half an hour in San Pedro thanks to a tech-savvy policeman.

The policeman was stopped on his way to work by a young lady who told him that her handbag and mobile had just been stolen.

When she mentioned that the mobile was an iPhone 5, the policeman used a Find my iPhone app on his own phone to locate it and found a signal coming from a parked BMW.

When questioned by patrolling officers called to the scene, the couple inside the car denied owning iPhones, even when the policeman made an alarm ring on the stolen mobile, which sounded in the car.

Upon searching the vehicle, another five mobile phones and a tablet were found, leading the police to arrest the couple for suspected theft.
