South Whitehall Police: iPhone App Finds Woman Who Stole Phone

Watch out if you're planning to steal an iPhone because there's an app that can find you.

South Whitehall Police were called to LA Fitness Dec. 17 by David Orinski, who said his iPhone had been stolen.

After using the Find my iPhone app, Orinski said it led him to a home at 1160 Overlook Road. The phone was then shut down remotely.

Police report Danielle Gehringer, 31, lives at 1160 Overlook Road, is a member of LA Fitness and was present at the gym when the phone was taken Dec. 16 between 2:20 and 2:45 p.m.

Police said Gehringer admitted to taking possession of the phone and had it in her bedroom. The phone was recovered and returned to Orinski.

A summons was sent for her to appear before Magisterial District Judge Jacob Hammond.

A summons does not indicate a conviction.

Why so condescending Mandy? How about you stop driving without a license with an unregistered vehicle and stop being drunk in public and maybe you would appreciate the police better.

Hahaha. Nice one Michael. It sounds like Amanda has had some dealings with the police. How would it take six cops to do that?! Probably just one. I'm sure this idiot is probably already on probation. Amanda Ritter is probably Gehringer.
