VALPARAISO, Ind. (AP) _ Northwestern Indiana police have arrested two people after a cellphone tracker app was used to locate a stolen purse.
They say a 37-year-old Porter County woman reported her purse stolen while she shopped Saturday at a Valparaiso supermarket. The woman used another shopper's cellphone to call her husband, who began tracking the cellphone in the stolen purse on a home computer.
Police say the husband directed them to a highway intersection in the town of Kouts, about 25 miles southeast of Gary. They arrested 34-year-old Lucas Nerio and 35-year-old Viviana Saucedo, both of Goshen. The Times reports the two are charged with theft and fraud and were being held in jail Monday on $8,500 bonds.
