FRANKLIN, Tenn. (AP) -- An 8-year-old Manchester boy has helped to solve burglaries in two counties after he used a tracking app on his iPad to lead deputies to the stolen goods.
The Tennessean reports that earlier this month a thief broke into the home of the Crabtree family. Using the app, 8-year-old Landon Crabtree directed sheriff's deputies to look for the stolen goods at the Ambassador Inn Motel.
A half-hour later, 46-year-old John Docherty was under arrest.
At the same time, police in Franklin were investigating a theft at the Carrington Hills apartments. When a Franklin detective saw Docherty on the news, he realized it was the same person a witness had described.
Docherty was jailed in Coffee County on $600,000 bond. Jail officials did not know whether he had an attorney.
