iPad App Leads to Arrest

An app on a stolen iPad lead to the arrest of a 32-year-old Levittown man wanted for burglary.


A 32-year-old Levittown man was arrested this week after police used a locater app downloaded on a iPad he stole to find him, the Bucks County Courier Times reported.

James Delmar Houston Jr. is was taken into custody by Middletown police on charges of burglary, criminal attempted burglary, criminal trespass, theft by unlawful taking and receiving stolen property, court records show.

Police were able to track Houston down using a locater app download on an iPad he stole from a Colbalt Ridge Drive South home in early September, the paper reported online.

When questioned by investigators, Houston admitted to the burglary. He also told police he stole the items for drug money, according to the report.

Houston was also noted as a "suspicious person" after he was caught walking around an elderly Middletown man's home on Rain Lily Road. The paper reports the Rain Lily Road incident occurred just days before the iPad theft.

The 32-year-old was arraigned before District Judge John Kelly Jr. and remains in county jail. Houston's bail was set at 10 percent of $50,000.
