If this isn’t good advertising for the iPhone’s “Find My iPhone” feature, I don’t know what is.
According to a report obtained by RumorFix, last February, cops in the Chris Brown cellphone snatching case (which he has been cleared of) were following the trail of an iPhone that witnesses say the rapper snatched from a fan who took a picture of the star without his permission.
After the incident, detectives tracked the phone using the “Find My iPhone” app — and it led them to the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in Miami. The detective discovered that Chris Brown wasn’t at that hotel, but his buddy and fellow rapper, Tyga, also known as Michael Stevenson, was there.
Dum De Dum Dum.
Over the next few days the phone was tracked from Miami to Atlanta and back to South Florida. Tyga performed in Atlanta on February 21 and was scheduled to appear in South Florida on February 22.
Detectives were given permission to search Tyga’s tour bus and guess where they found the missing phone?
It was in a backpack belonging to Tyga’s head of security, Devon Blanche.
Tyga told cops that he saw Chris throw the phone out of his limo — and he thought Devon picked it up and kept it.
“He [Tyga] knows Brown has a problem with certain types of photos being taken and that Brown probably got upset when the girl took a photo,” the report says.
Devon said he heard Brown say, “‘F**k this phone.’ When the phone hit the pavement and slid, Tyga said, ‘What’s that?’ He [Devon] retrieved the phone and asked if anyone has lost it.”
Police determined there was no evidence Devon was trying to steal the phone.
And, that closes the Case Of The Snatched Phone.
