Find My iPhone helps track down robbers

A Pittsburgh-area man who was robbed over the weekend used MobileMe’s Find My iPhone feature to help police track down the robbers and his stolen goods. The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports that the man was robbed by two other men of his iPhone, wallet, and PIN numbers for his credit cards early Sunday morning; the man later used Find My iPhone to track the robbers to a nearby Wal-Mart where police said the suspects purchased goods using a stolen card. Police officers eventually caught up with the suspects at a gas station, recovering a black pellet gun, stolen IDs, credit cards, and cash. The men will be charged with access device fraud, conspiracy, receiving stolen property, possessing instruments of crime, and robbery. [via TUAW]
