A San Francisco man was arrested Sunday for allegedly purchasing a stolen $800 iPad for $250 in the Mission district, police at Park Station said.
The iPad had been swiped during a car smash-in in the 700 block of Corbett Avenue around 7 a.m. Sunday.
The owner and cops used technology to track the location of the popular electronic device, police said. Cops say they found a 39-year-old man with the iPad at Mission and 11th streets. He did not match the description of the burglar, police said.
“The man said that he had just bought the $800 iPad for $250 on the street at 14th and Mission streets,” police said.
He was arrested and charged with possession of stolen property, police said.
