iPad could provide big break in theft of guns, jewelry

NEW ORLEANS (WGNO) -- New Orleans police are hoping a photo can help catch a burglary suspect.  The case is included in the latest Wheel of Justice report.

The burglary happened on August 11 at about 11:30 in the morning.  According to police, a man returned to his home to find the kitchen window broken.

Inside, the man reported finding his Nintendo PlayStation, jewelry, a .40 caliber Glock pistol, and an AR-15 tactical rifle missing.

Police also say the burglar stole an iPad.  The owner tells WGNO that he was able to use the tablet's location function to find it.  He says the man who had it ran away once he was confronted but not before the burglary victim could take a photo of him.
