With the help of Find My iPhone feature, a carjacking suspect is now in the prison.
On the night of December 26, the victim Chase Richardson was approached by a man at an intersection. The man was armed with a gun and was banging on the driver’s side window of Richardson’s Honda sedan.
The man was yelling at Richardson to get out of the car and get on the ground. Richardson, being a clever lad placed his iPhone in the center console of his car.
