he “Find My iPad” feature helped Volusia County deputies track down a man accused of stealing guns, jewelry and electronics from a house Sunday.
Raymond Ingberg, 28, faces charges of armed burglary, grand theft and being a convicted felon in possession of a firearm.
Ingberg met a shopper outside the Publix grocery store on Elkcam Boulevard about 4 p.m. Sunday, said Andrew Gant, a Volusia County sheriff’s spokesman. The man asked Ingberg if he was hungry.
The shopper told Ingberg he would buy him food and headed inside, accidentally leaving his iPad Mini on the sidewalk, Gant said.
When the shopper came out, he could not find Ingberg, and his iPad was missing.
At about the same time, a Deltona resident came home to find the back door broken and the house torn apart, Gant said. Five guns were missing, as were electronics, two watches, jewelry and Michael Jordan sneakers.
The resident did find a pair of black boots that didn’t belong to anyone in the home, which the burglar apparently discarded when putting on the Jordans, Gant said.
Meanwhile, the Publix shopper contacted deputies and used the Find My iPad feature to track the device to a home on Covington Drive, Gant said. Deputies went to the home, where a resident said Ingberg was just there and had asked to keep an iPad Mini in the house.
Ingberg was found nearby wearing white Jordans, and he had electronics and jewelry with him, Gant said. After deputies confronted him, he led them to a green duffel bag in the woods, where they found the five missing guns.
Ingberg is being held at the Volusia County Jail on a $55,000 bond.
