COLORADO SPRINGS - Co. A burglary suspect learned a hard lesson over the weekend when the item he allegedly stole actually led police to him.
The owners were able to use the GPS tracking device on their stolen iPad to give officers the suspect's location.
Police say around 4 p.m. Sunday, a family living on Northfield Road found their home burglarized. Cash, jewelry and that Apple iPad were stolen.
But the victims were able to track the movement on the iPad, leading officers to a vehicle driving on Austin Bluffs
Police say the passenger tried to jump out and run away after officers pulled the car over- but was tased.
In the car, police reportedly recovered all the items stolen from the home as well as items from other burglaries and car break-ins throughout Colorado Springs.
Jeffrey Colerick was booked into jail. He now faces a number of charges.
