One stolen iPad nets 800-pound stash of drugs worth $35 million

“So, you’re sitting on a nearly 800-pound stash of drugs and you’ve got nothing to do,” Ronald O. Carlson reports for Tech.Blorge. “Sounds like a great time to steal an iPad and fill all of those empty hours with a little Apple flavored fun, right? Apparently, that’s exactly what one group of criminals did and the police tracked them down using Apple’s much loved and lauded ‘Find My iPad’ feature.”
“Meth amphetamine, about 780 pounds of the stuff, were discovered in a Palo Alto, California apartment by police tracking a stolen iPad,” Carlson reports. “Quite naturally, the cops were using the Apple tablet’s built-in ‘Find My iPad’ feature, which leverages the device’s integrated GPS and displays its location on a user’s iCloud account page.
