Sergeant Dan Marshall of the Indio Police Department explained:

"Some people inside the venue noticed that their phones were missing, so they used the app, you know, Find My iPhone, or however they were tracking it. Obviously, they weren't using their phone because their phone was gone. Enough people pinpointed it to this person, they notified security, they looked around, they saw a person with a backpack, they detained him and then they called us. When we got there, we discovered these hundred-plus cellphones in his backpack."

Wow.

Reinaldo was arrested and charged with grand theft and possession of stolen property.

So far, about 20 of the phones have been returned to their rightful owners, with the rest turned into Coachella's Lost and Found.
