Technology Helps Stolen Ipod Get Returned

A stolen Ipod found its way back to its owner thanks to technology. Grass Valley Police Sgt Steve Johnson says that in April a report was taken of a stolen Ipod from a lock at Sierra College. Apparently the thief then sold the device to a local pawn shop and someone else then purchased it from the pawn shop. Fortunately the original victim had reported the stolen Ipod to Itunes.
