She deserves a stiff jail sentence for having the balls to do such a thing. The value of the Iphone should make it a felony offense, Aloha!

Kinda reminds me of an incident in high school... These crooks will do anything for a quick buck. I bet the thief realized that phone was worthless without a way to unlock it.
