Former iPad owner posts pictures of ‘thief’ who took his iPad

Stolen iPad pictures

A North Little Rock man is using social media to track down the ‘thief’ who may have stolen his iPad. It shouldn’t be too hard to find the woman: her picture is all over facebook and Twitter, Fox Arkansas reports.

Stolen iPad pictures

Allen Engstrom and his social media friends have been poking fun at the unidentified woman who snapped self portraits of herself on Engstrom’s iPad after he mistakenly left the pricey gadget on a plane last month.

Engstrom didn’t know who had his iPad until the woman’s pictures started showing up on his family’s smart phones last month.

Since then he’s been having fun at the woman’s expense, posting her pics on facebook and twitter, hoping someone recognizes her — or she recognizes herself from the photos that went viral.

“I have no idea whether or not someone will say hey I know this person,” he told Fox 16 News.

“Every time I get a picture of her it’s like a continuing fountain of entertainment.”

Engstrom says the woman’s photo showed up on her son’s iPhone one day out of the blue.

Engstrom says he wants to take a picture of himself with a sign that says “I want my iPad back” and hopefully she’ll get the point.

Apple products can track stolen or lost devices through an app called “Find My iPhone”. The feature can also lock the device remotely or emit a loud, piercing sound. But Engstrom said he never turned the feature on.

“It’s sad that somebody lost their device.” Zach McDonald with The iPhone Guys said. He added it may be gone for good.

“If he didn’t [have the features on] then he’s kinda probably at a loss and relying on the goodwill of social media.”

Engstrom hasn’t filed a theft report on this yet, according to Fox 16.

He says the iPad has/had his name and email address engraved on the back with a message to please return the iPad if found.

Maybe the ‘thief’ can’t read?

    Baaaaaaaaa-bay…she thought she hit the jackpot!

    LOL @ her for playing with a device and not knowing how it works.

    I can’t wait for Good Morning America or some other National show to pick up this story and blast her tail. All he needs to do is attach a little reward money to it. Her own Mama will turn her in!

    Too funny!

    iCloud would upload the pictures between Apple devices too which is probably how her picture ended up on his son’s phone, she’s a retard

    So, I have a Microsoft Surface (LOVE IT) and I have accidental insurance on it so that if it is stolen and I file a police report, it is covered. The can also remotely deactivate it from Microsoft because it’s registered.

    Don’t people have insurance on these things? My boss has an I-Pad and she bought it from Best Buy and got their accident plan.

    @ Sandra, James was on there with his “best friend” a girl who he brought on the Bill Cunningham show to tell her that she was a gardening tool because she slept around alot. She then implied that he was just mad because he never slept with her. On the Catfish episode he was on he was super flamboyant, while on the Cunningham show he was more laid back….I’m thinking he is a serial rality show addict like a lot of these extra folks trolling on Twitter and social media these days smh

    yeah the Apple products come with tracking devices. Sure they present it like it’s security for you, but it’s really big brother keeping tabs on you. I’m thinking if any of these devices have sim or gps, they can be tracked. Guess you can tell I’m no techy guru by any stretch of the imagination.

    She’s a silly one!!! And this is just a reminder to folks out there not to be taking “nakey” pics with ur apple devices. My 6 year old has an ipad that is linked to my icloud acct; I couldn’t imagine trying to explain 2 her why momma was taking those types of pics :ROFL:

    Now that this chick has been put on BLAST, Im sure he will get his Ipad back and she will act just as “dumb” as she looks. I can’t wait :popcorn:
