WRENTHAM, Mass. (AP) — New England Patriots’ kicker Stephen Gostkowski is a Super Bowl winner, an All Pro, and now a crime solver.
The Sun Chronicle, citing court records, reports that Gostkowski helped police find his iPad after it was stolen from his truck outside his home in January.
First, he forwarded to police a half-dozen selfies of a stranger he found on his iCloud account. Then he tried to locate the iPad through an application that uses GPS technology to locate stolen devices.
The iPad was tracked to a home in Woonsocket, Rhode Island.
A 19-year-old man pleaded no contest to a receiving stolen property charge in Rhode Island and placed on one year probation. A larceny charge in Massachusetts is pending.
The suspect says he bought the iPad for $50.
