Phone App Leads To Arrest

MARIETTA, Ga. (AP) – An iPhone application helped Marietta police find a stolen phone and led to the seizure of drugs and guns.

Police responded to a call about a stolen iPhone around 3 a.m. Tuesday. The officers used the “Find My iPhone” app to trace the phone to an apartment complex.

Police say the officers went to the building indicated by the app, where a strong odor of marijuana was coming from an apartment.

As officers talked to the occupants, one man tried to escape by jumping off the balcony. Police caught him and found the stolen phone in his possession.

Officers found 1,100 grams of marijuana, five handguns, one assault rifle and 42 Oxycodone pills in the apartment.

They arrested seven people on drug charges. Two of them also face weapons charges.
