A 19-year-old Lisbon Avenue man, apparently unaware that the iPhone 5s smart phone is equipped with a tracking device listing exactly where it can be found, was arrested on felony grand larceny and stolen property charges early Tuesday for allegedly stealing a UB student’s cell phone and other property from the victim’s locker at the school’s South Campus on Main Street sometime late Monday.

Sean J. Mullins was arrested about 12:45 a.m. at his house as police used computer equipment to locate the stolen iPhone. Officers reported also recovering at Mullins’ house the victim’s stolen bank card and school identification card. Mullins was charged with fourth-degree grand larceny and fourth-degree criminal possession of stolen property.
