LOS ANGELES, Calif.–Police investigating an armed robbery in the Fairfax Village area quickly found a woman’s stolen Apple iPhone by using the “Find My Phone” application, and they arrested two people in the crime, authorities said today.

Officers were sent to Sierra Bonita Avenue at Rosewood Avenue about 9:30 p.m. Nov. 17 on an armed robbery call, said Officer Norma Eisenman of the Los Angeles Police Department.

A woman told officers that a gunman had taken her purse and her iPhone, which had a tracking application installed, Eisenman said.

“A local citizen offered his assistance, and allowed the use of his computer, which allowed the officers to track the iPhone to the vicinity of 11th Street and Ardmore Avenue,” Eisenman said.

Officers went to the area, about four miles southeast of the crime scene, and a short time later they saw a man matching the description of the suspect, Eisenman said.

“The male was detained, and officers discovered an iPhone in his pocket,” Eisenman said. “The victim’s cell number was dialed and it rang, alerting the officers that the phone was the victim’s iPhone.”

Jason Topper, 34, of Chatsworth, was arrested and booked for armed robbery. Officers recovered the victim’s purse and its contents, and found a replica firearm that matched the description of the “gun” that was used in the armed robbery, police said. Officers later arrested Dominique Taylor, 21, of Los Angeles, and she was booked for receiving stolen property.

Bail was set at $1.1 million for Topper, a parolee; and at $20,000 for Taylor. Charges have been filed against both suspects, and their court cases are pending, according to the District Attorney’s office.
