Find My iPad Leads Police To 780 Pound Stash Of Meth

Find My iPad Leads Police To 780 Pound Stash Of Meth

Find my iPhone has been used to track down thieves and criminals in the past, but the latest report from police in San Jose, California definitely takes the cake. According to Mercury News (via Gizmodo), Police were able to track down a stolen iPad, and discover one of the nation’s single largest crystal meth stockpiles ever in the process!

Police used Find my iPhone to track the stolen device to an apartment building, and the residents agreed to let the police enter and look for the iPad. Instead of finding just the iPad, however, the officers also found 780 pounds of crystal meth with a street value of around $35 million!

“They probably thought if they didn’t [let the police enter], we’d suspect something,” Tomkins said. “Or they thought, ‘I’ll let them in — they probably won’t find anything.’”

District Attorney Jeff Rosen said roughly 100 pounds or a little more of meth are recovered annually in the county, making this seizure “easily at least six years worth,” he said.

“I told my dad about the bust,” said Rosen, “and he said, ‘They have $35 million, and they can’t go out and buy an iPad?

I guess this just goes to show you that meth dealers probably shouldn’t steal iPads. Then again, they probably shouldn’t be cooking meth either…
