Thief Steals iPad; West Carrollton Man Has Last Laugh
WEST CARROLLTON -- James Johnson has been trying to track down his stolen iPad for a while now since a thief broke into his van.
"I didn't want them to enjoy something that I paid for," said Johnson.
For a month, James has been following around his IPad.
"He was just riding around with it on. All day, I was just sitting there watching him from the computer," said Johnson.
Johnson tried twice to catch the guy.
"I traced it along time ago but they cut it off. They must of realized what was going on," he said. "When it's turned off you can't do anything about it, but as soon as they turn it on it makes you aware."
And then finally Sunday, "they decided to turn it on and as soon as it turned on it traces right away," he said.
Once your iPad is lost, you have to go to another computer, sign into iCloud and click Find my iPad/iPhone. But you have to register it before hand.
"It's the most important thing you can have. I don't care if it's a lawnmower, a car stereo or an iPod, is the serial number. That is the most important thing because those things are chipped electronically into the device," said Dayton Police Sergeant Moises Perez. "It's not like you can scratch it off and it'll go away. It's always there. There's nothing the other person can do to get rid of that number."
"I kept the box and I was able to tell them everything they needed to know," said Johnson.
Johnson did all the right things, but what police don't recommend is following the suspect.
"I went over there and I counted the exact address and then I called the police," said Johnson.
"You don't want to track them yourself," said Perez. "The best thing to do is call the police and we will assist you and trying to locate the stolen item."
"I agree. Don't go to the house, but I didn't go to the house," said Johnson. "I drove by the house. I just wanted to make sure it was the right address."
Now Johnson has his iPad back and says he also has the last laugh.
"I'm actually loving this, hopefully they watch and see me on."
