That's rotten. If he is able to track it and show where it is, isn't that enough for the police to do what it takes to recover it? I would just keep tracking it and see if you can catch them in public. I'm sure that isn't what you are "supposed" to do but I would be mad. The people were not "supposed" to steal it either. Not to excuse what they did but people need to quit being stupid and leaving things (purses, wallets, electronicas, etc) out in the open in cars (locked or unlocked). You are asking for trouble.

That's rotten....YES! I want this crime to be solved! Maybe the thief tossed the phone into bushes? Did they call the phone while the police officer was at the door....(aha!)
