first_img A 32-year-old man who went on a hit-and-run spree on Thanksgiving night in Outagamie County, Wisconsin has been identified, and police say a phone app played a crucial role in his arrest.Jonathan Harper was arrested after police said he caused a number of crashes, and stole at least two vehicles, one of which had a 14-year-old girl and a rifle inside, according to Fox 11 News.The teenager  managed to jump out of the truck while he started driving away, leaving her phone inside. She remembered she had installed the “Find My iPhone” just a day earlier, and ended up aiding investigators.AdChoices广告“We had a location; a general area of where he fled but, beyond that, we didn’t know,” Staff Sgt. Ryan Carpenter of the Outagamie Co. Sheriff’s Office told Fox 11 News.Find My iPhone app (Photo Credit: Apple Inc. App Store)“They didn’t know where he was, but my phone was with him, so they could trace him with that, so I was like telling everybody, ‘You have to like, give me a phone!’” the teen, who Fox 11 did not name to protect her identity, said.Using a friend’s phone, she was able to sign into the “Find My iPhone” app, and locate where the device was at, which eventually led to police finding and locating the suspect, as well as the vehicle.According to Carpenter, the suspect was found about eight miles away from his last known location, so it “would be like looking for a needle in a haystack.”“She literally tracked [the phone] the whole entire time, so the law enforcement kind of surrounded her, and she showed them where it was,” the teenagers’s mother — and a witness herself —said. “It was incredible.”Harper could face a slew of charges, including multiple counts of vehicle theft and kidnapping, and was scheduled to appear in Outagamie County Court on Tuesday afternoon.More on Remotely Wipes iPhone X While It Sits in Police EvidenceGuy’s $650 World Series Ticket Stolen By Scammer Through Instagram PhotoThis App Tells You How (Legally) Stoned You Are Woman Tries to Buy an Audi With Bills Printed on Inkjet PrinterChild Finds $40,000 Worth of Meth Inside Lego Box Stay on targetlast_img read more

first_imgMore Brits are expected to book flights to Tunisia and Morocco this year thanks to the restructuring of air passenger duty.This is according to ABTA – The Travel Association, which said that the countries will be “winners” this year in terms of the number of holidaymakers booking short breaks there.ABTA spokesperson Frances Tuke said that short breaks are something that “people always want to do”, despite fewer people going on holiday last year because of the recession.”The big winners will probably be outside of the eurozone again – we think Morocco and Tunisia because the air passenger duty change has positively impacted on those destinations,” she commented.Morocco and Tunisia are now classed in the closest geographical air passenger duty band, meaning that passengers must only pay an £11 levy for their flights. Before November, the cost was £40 because both nations are outside of the European Union.A recent poll by Thomson and First Choice revealed that getting good value for money is the biggest concern for UK holidaymakers this year.ReturnOne wayMulti-cityFromAdd nearby airports ToAdd nearby airportsDepart14/08/2019Return21/08/2019Cabin Class & Travellers1 adult, EconomyDirect flights onlySearch flights Map RelatedMillions of Brits flying on holiday this weekendMillions of Brits flying on holiday this weekendHolidaymakers more likely to take single breakHolidaymakers more likely to take single breakBusy summer expected at Exeter International AirportExeter International Airport is planning to accommodate approximately 135,000 passengerslast_img read more
