An IPad that was stolen on September 22 in the Nass Valley was recovered last night because the Find My IPad App took police straight to the house in which it was located.

The owner of the IPad informed the Terrace RCMP that he had used the app Find My IPad and received a GPS beacon that the stolen IPad was at an address in the 3900 block of Hagen St.

Police were able to get a search warrant using this information. The IPad in question was located and seized inside of the residence indicated by the app.

Charges of possession of stolen property are being forwarded to Crown Counsel on a 21 year-old man.
