Folsom police say they located a burglary suspect last week using the Find My iPhone app.

Police arrested Justin Cogbill, a 36-year-old Elk Grove man, who was found with credit cards, a cellphone and the victim’s vehicle, reportedly stolen last Friday from her apartment on Creekside Drive, the Folsom Police Department said in a Nixle post Thursday.

Cogbill was tracked to Elk Grove using the Find My iPhone application on the victim’s phone, police said. The victim’s credit cards were being used there and in Sacramento, according to the post.

Police located the stolen property and items bought with the stolen credit cards.

Cogbill was booked into the Sacramento County jail for various charges, including burglary.
