MANCHESTER, N.H.—Police in Manchester, N.H., say a woman tracked down her stolen iPhone by using an app, leading to an arrest.

The 30-year-old woman said her purse was stolen with her iPhone inside while shopping at a supermarket in Bedford on Sunday. Police said her fiancé tracked down that phone at the Walmart in Manchester using an app.

He called police as the woman went to that Walmart, where she spotted a woman she had seen at the supermarket. She monitored the woman with a Walmart employee until a police officer arrived.

The officer later arrested 37-year-old Loretta Costa of Manchester. The iPhone was inside the car, plus gift cards and a computer purchased with the woman's credit card.

Costa was charged with reckless conduct, receiving stolen property, and other charges.
