Dude, Where's My iPad? Fridley Police Blotter for Sept. 11–12, 2012

It's been gone a while, might be lost, could be stolen ...

Not everyone who owns an iPad uses it compulsively, all day, everyday, apparently. A complainant reported to Fridley police that his Apple iPad has been missing about a week and he didn’t know if it was misplaced or someone took it from his home on Rice Creek Way. He said there had been people in his home but he didn't know who may have taken it. The complainant provided police with serial numbers.
