iPhone used to help catch Waimanalo thief


    Lenny Vaughn

An iPhone foiled a 37-year-old man’s attempt to get away with a theft on a Waimanalo beach this week, police said.

Lenny Vaughn, of Waimanalo, was charged Thursday with second-degree theft. His bail was set at $11,000.

Police said Vaughn was walking along the beach at about 6 p.m. Wednesday when he took two bags containing various items. He was found about 50 minutes later via an iPhone locator and was arrested across the street from the beach on Laumilo Street.

Last month, a 25-year-old Kalihi man was charged with robbery after police said he robbed a game room on Young Street and was caught when officers tracked him down by the stolen iPhone’s locator.
