Phone burglary: got an app for that

BOULDER, Colo. (AP) - Worried about a stolen cell phone? There are apps for that.

Boulder police say a man used two different apps on his iPhone to help police arrest a theft suspect.

According to KMGH-TV (http://bit.ly/mShiyQ ), Hugh Huffaker left his cell phone in a locker at a recreation center and when he returned, it was gone.

Huffaker used a special GPS tracking app to find his cellphone at the Boulder Public Library. When he got to the library, he used a second app to make the phone alarm go off.

Officers said they arrested a homeless man, John Millhiser, on suspicion of theft and burglary.
