BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — The Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office is investigating the theft of an iPhone from Donna Klein Jewish Academy in West Boca Raton.
Teacher Amanda Brooke told police that she “placed her iPhone 5 on her desk, walked outside of the classroom to talk to a student's parent, and then a few minutes later came back to the classroom and discovered the phone was gone.”
Donna Klein apparently has video surveillance, but video “did not show anything. There camera was facing the wrong way and does not spin to 360 (degrees).”
Brooke told police that she called AT&T to track the phone but it was turned off.
Ed. Note: As we have reported roughly 1,000 times in the past year: iPhones have a free feature called “find my iPhone.” Boca Raton police use it regularly to find stolen iPhones, but for some reason, many iPhone users never turn it on. If you want to find your iPhone should it ever be lost or stolen, simply activate the feature when you buy the phone. You may read about it here.
