    When one local woman's iPad went missing in a Washington D.C. airport she tracked it down with an app and found it in a very unlikely place.

    The Find My iPhone app lets you track your phone i-pad and even i-pod from another device. That way you always know where you left or lost your favorite electronics.

    Michele Goff knew when she boarded the plane to Jacksonville from Washington D.C. she was missing something. “I already had checked my baggage and said shoot I forgot my iPad in my suitcase.”

    In addition to his arrest, I hope the employee was suspended or fired from his airport job.

    Interesting how the story doesn't mention how the guy got ahold of the iPad. Does he work for the airline? TSA? Does he have a house full of stolen goods, or did he by some magic get caught the very first time he opened a bag and was lucky to find an iPad, but unfortunate to find one with tracking enabled?

    I'm with HaveMilesWillTravel...they should have reported more background about the arrested individual! I have that tracking feature on my iPad. Who wants to steal it? Haha. Neat story, though.
