September 2, 2014

? POLICE have recovered items stolen in a burglary on the day the crime was reported - thanks to tracking software on a stolen tablet.

The iPad was taken with other property by thieves who broke into a house in Downend during the weekend.

The burglary was discovered and reported to police on the Sunday, and later the same night they recovered the property in nearby Kingswood.

PC James Rochford said: "Tracking apps can be downloaded for free for your laptop, tablet or smart phone. They're available for Apple, Android and Windows devices. It's worth a minute of your time to download them."
