The thieves stole Fisher’s laptop and purse, where she was keeping her keys and her phone inside. She then started the app on her iPad and the GPS tracker located the iPhone in the neighboring block.

“Burglars tend to be a pattern type of criminal. So if you get one burglar off the street, you’ve solved multiple crimes”
