Cortland mom tracks daughter's stolen iPod to employee at Mantua business

BAZETTA TOWNSHIP, Ohio (WYTV) – A Cortland girl was reunited with her stolen iPod Touch after her mother and Bazetta police track it to a woman in Mantua.

Detective Joe Sofchek said that a girl was with her mom Wednesday at the Wal-Mart in Bazetta Township when she laid her iPod down in the shoe department. When she went back, the device was gone.

The Apple iCloud tracking device in the phone later sent an alert to the girl’s mother indicating the device was connected to a wi-fi signal at a business in Mantua.

Sofchek said his department contacted Mantua police, and they made contact with the suspect at the business who admitted to taking the device.

The woman will be charged with theft. A court filing is expected Friday, and Sofchek said the suspect’s name will be released at that time.
