Lt. Sidney  Allen of the Little Rock Police Department reports that a find iPhone app led to burglary arrests and recovery of electronic gear— three TVs, two laptops and, criticallly, an iPad —  taken yesterday afternoon from a home in the St. Charles subdivision.

His report follows:

On December 30, 2013, at approximately 1643 hours, Officer Deno responded to a Burglary in Progress at 7 St. Charles Court. Upon arrival, Officer Deno made contact with the homeowners, Stacey and Mike McClellan. The McClellan’s advised three flat-screen TVs, a Dell laptop, an Apple laptop, and an Apple iPad II were stolen from the residence. Crime Scene responded and processed the residence. The Apple iPad II had the “Find iPhone” application installed on it, so they were advised to contact police again if they were able to track it.

At approximately 2002 hours, Mrs. McClellan contacted police and advised her stolen iPad was pinging in the area of Wright and Martin Luther King. Officer Hall was dispatched to the area and began walking through the parking lot of the Baptist Car Wash, when he observed a black male, later identified as Dewon Williams, holding what appeared to be two laptops. Officer Hall approached Mr. Williams, who was attempting to get into a green Pontiac Lemans, with Arkansas license 301SJP. Mr. Williams walked toward Officer Hall, handed him the items, and then fled on foot.

At that time, another black male, later identified as Malcolm Farrelly, exited the driver’s seat of the green Pontiac and fled on foot. Williams and Farrelly were apprehended by Officers Smith and Baker, following a short foot pursuit, and taken into custody. A small bag of marijuana was located on Williams, along with $690 in cash and two bolts. The bolts were later found to have been taken from the 60” TV that was secured to the wall at 7 St. Charles Court. Officer Hall contacted Officer Deno and confirmed that he had in his possession the stolen iPad, Macbook, and TV remote taken during the burglary at 7 St. Charles Court.

Williams and Farrelly were subsequently transported to the Northwest Detective Division for further questioning, and the green Pontiac was towed to the Crime Scene bay. Once at the NWDO, Detective Rector read Williams and Farrelly their Miranda Rights individually. Both declined to provide statements. Williams complained of a pain to his right wrist, and was transported to UAMS for further evaluation. Farrelly was charged with Residential Burglary, Felony Theft of Property, and Fleeing and transported to the PCRJ. Williams was charged with Residential Burglary, Felony Theft of Property, Fleeing, and Misdemeanor Possession of Marijuana, and later transported from UAMS to PCRJ. The IPad, Macbook, and TV remote were released back into the possession of Mr. McClellan.
