A Bonei Olam volunteer has her Blackberry back today, thanks to her phone carrier’s GPS tracking capabilities and the help of a police officer. On Wednesday night last week, during the Bonei Olam event at the Lake Terrace ballroom, a Bonei Olam volunteer placed her blackberry on a table and returned a few moments later realizing it was gone. When it wasn’t anywhere to be found, she went home. Thursday morning, the volunteer contacted her phone carrier who through the GPS were able to track the phone to a home near Lake Terrace. The volunteer then contacted Lake Terrace who gave them the information of one of their employees who resides on that block.
Police were called and went to the hall where the suspect was confronted. The man admitted to taking the phone and turned it over to the Police, with many unwanted applications and photos already downloaded on the device.
