Nabbing criminals? There’s an app for that!
TMZ reports that Black Eyed Peas frontman Will.i.am turned to his iPad to take down a crook who broke into his Bentley last week and swiped over $10,000 worth of his personal property. Among the stolen goods: the rapper’s bling and his brand-new iPad.
But the creep should have thought twice about taking the 35-year-old star’s Apple accessory. Law enforcement sources told TMZ that quick-thinking Will.i.am used the iPad's built-in tracking system to locate the thief and forwarded his whereabouts to authorities.
Though the bad guy remains on the loose, most of Will.i.am’s belongings were returned to him.
