Man allegedly steals more than 100 cellphones at Coachella festival

On Friday, a NY man was arrested after allegedly stealing more than 100 cell phones from concert attendees in one of the more freaky crimes ever committed at the music festival.

The victims had been enjoying themselves at the three-day music and arts festival in Indio, California, over the weekend when they fell prey to opportunistic thief Henao. By using the "Find My iPhone" app, authorities were led to 36-year-old Reinaldo de Jesus Henao of NY, who had over a hundred iPhones in a single backpack. According to a news report by KMIR, a man attending the weekend event was caught with over 100 phones in his possession.

Stealing phones at Coachella is nothing new. It seems he wasn't well-versed in the art of mobile thievery, as he failed to turn each phone off as he took them. They pretty much included halter tops, feathers, short shorts and the most retro frames you can find. The group followed Henao until security could detain him, and he was eventually arrested by police. According to Sergeant Marshall, more than 130 phones were collected from Henao's backpack and a lot of them have been returned to their rightful owners.

According to LA's ABC 7, "Henao was booked into the Larry D. Smith Correctional Center.He was released on Saturday after posting $10,000 bail, according to inmate records".

Several phones were returned to victims, and others were left at lost and found.
