A New York City man was arrested Friday night at Coachellafest after police found over 100 phones in his possession. At the festival on Friday night, several concert goers say they noticed that their cell phones were missing and activated their “Find My iPhone App” and began tracking their devices. The victims then alerted festival security, who took the suspect into custody.
Reinaldo De Jesus Henao was arrested and when police searched his backpack, they found over 100 cell phones. Out of the 100 phones, only 20 were returned to their owners, while the rest were sent to the festival lost and found. Police believe that most of the cell phones were taken near the Sahara Tent, where mostly EDM artists perform during the festival. Reinaldo De Jesus Henao was booked into the Larry D. Smith Correctional Facility in Banning and charged with grand theft and possession of stolen property. He was released the next day on $10,000 bail. Read more about this story at KMIR website.
