During the first weekend of Coachella a man named Reinaldo De Jesus Henao was arrested after he was caught by the police with over 100 phones in his backpack. Fortunately those that had their phones stolen used the “Find My iPhone” app and tracked down their cellphones. Some of the cells were returned to their owners, while the rest were handed over to the festival’s lost and found area.
Well on the second weekend of Coachella, on Saturday, April 22nd five people were caught stealing over 40 phones in addition to cash and credit cards. According to the Desert Sun, after reports of missing phones on Friday, the police identified two separate groups of thieves. Apparently, the first group was formed from 35-year-old Angela Trivino of New York City and 38-year-old Viviana Hernandez of Los Angeles and the second one included 29-year-old Brenda Cansino of Miami, 27-year-old Marco Leon of Los Angeles and 25-year-old Sharon Ruiz of Van Nuys.
