Snatch thief arrested with help of iPhone application

The police have arrested a 35-year-old man for an alleged snatch theft following a crucial lead provided by an iPhone application. On Jan 23, the 31-year-old victim was walking along Tanjong Katong Road at 9.15pm, when an unknown man approached her from behind and snatched her clutch bag. Among the items in the bag that was stolen was her iPhone. While officers from Bedok Police Division pursued all available leads, their breakthrough came in an unusual form - the 'Find my iPhone' application by Apple, which allows the phone's owner to track it on a map, as long as they have the application. With this important lead, and armed with a description of the suspect, officers arrested the man about 90 minutes later, at about 10.45pm, along Jalan Dua.
