A University City man said he used an app to track down his iPhone that was stolen from his car.

Ted Engler said he walked to his car, which was parked in front of his home, to lock it and grab his phone when he noticed a stranger inside.

“He opened the door, reached in to start to get the phone because he saw the charger light, and that’s when I caught him,” Engler said.

Engler said he yelled at the man, who refused to move. Engler’s wife then called police.

“He backed out and ran down the road. That’s the last I saw of him,” Engler said.

Engler said he then grabbed his iPad and used an app called Find My iPhone to track his phone.

“I went in and grabbed my iPad and we noticed the cell phone was moving. It has a little radar on it,” Engler said.

Police told Engler they would move in to arrest the alleged thief, 38-year-old Keegan McDaniel, once McDaniel was no longer moving. McDaniel was arrested is facing felony stealing charges.
