Man Arrested for Stealing Over 100 Phones at Coachella

Every year, Coachella brings tens of thousands of beautiful people to the Empire Polo Club of Indio, California. While most are there to catch some tunes and soak up some sun, statistically speaking, there has to be a few bad eggs in the bunch. At this year’s event, that included 36-year-old New York resident Reinaldo De Jesus Henao, who was caught stealing over 100 cell phones during the festival.

A number of attendees noticed their devices missing on Friday, probably as they went to snap a pic of a celebrity sighting or capture footage of King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard’s wild show. Thinking quickly, they utilized the “Find My Phone” app and, in a miracle of cell service and location sharing, actually found Henao wandering the grounds. According to Indio police Sargent Dan Marshall (via KMIR), the victims followed the thief and he was “quickly detained by security until law enforcement officers could arrive.”
