ONLY IN BOCA: Woman Sunbathing On Belly Shocked iPhone Is Stolen

A black iPhone 4 was allegedly stolen while a Boca woman was sunbathing on her belly.

Here is the exact wording of the report filed by the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Deputy who handled the call.

AT 1:33PM I SPOKE WITH COMPLAINANT, BARBARA MCCAFFERY, IN REFERENCE TO FILING A REPORT FOR A STOLEN BLACK APPLE IPHONE 4. COMPLAINANT STATED THE FOLLOWING: TODAY, JANUARY 11, 2013 BETWEEN 12:43P AND 1:00P WHILE AT THE POOL IN HER DAUGHTER'S DEVELOPMENT AND UNKOWN PERSON(S) TOOK HER IPHONE 4. MCCAFFERY STATED SHE HAD GONE TO THE POOL AND LAYED DOWN ON HER STOMACH ON A CHAZ LOUNGE CHAIR. MCCAFFERY STATED SHE PLACED THE IPHONE 4 ON HER FLIP FLOPS DIRECTLY IN FRONT OF HER APPROXIMATELY 5 TO 6 INCHES AWAY FROM HER HEAD. MCCAFFERY STATED SHE WAS IN A LIGHT SLEEP AND HEARD THE GATE OPEN BUT DID NOT LOOK TO SEE WHO IT WAS. WHEN MCCAFFERY CAME INTO THE POOL AREA THERE WAS NO ONE THERE AND WHEN SHE AWOKE SHE DID NOT SEE ANY RESIDENTS, GUESTS OR GROUNDS/MAINTENANCE PEOPLE AROUND. MCAFFERY IS VERY UPSET THAT SOMEONE CAME UP TO HER AND TOOK THE IPHONE 4 FROM HER WHILE SHE WAS SLEEPING AND HAD NO SENSE OF WHAT WAS GOING ON. MCCAFFERY STATED THERE ARE NO SURVEILLANCE CAMERAS IN THE POOL AREA AND NO SECURITY GUARDS ON STAFF. THE IPHONE 4 WAS PURCHASED A WEEK AGO.

Police add that while iPhones nationwide are recovered due to Apple's tracking system, Ms. McCaffery did not activate the free “Find My iPhone” feature on her phone, although AT&T was notified of the theft.
