Suspected Chislehurst burglars arrested using iPad tracking app

09:42 14 February 2013

An iPad tracking app led to the arrest of two suspected burglars who allegedly broke into a Chislehurst home last night.

The pair are thought to have stolen a car, as well as various electronics, before Bromley police were called at around 6am this morning.

Officers followed the ‘find my iPhone’ app, which showed the gadget as being in Brownspring Drive, in Greenwich. Following a street search, the car was recovered.

An 18-year-old man from Mottingham and a 19-year-old man from Bromley remain in custody at Bromley police station.

A second burglarly took place last night at an office premises in Bromley High Street.

Two men, aged 24 and 32, both from Croydon, were arrested shortly after police arrived and remain in custody.
