(TheLibertyRevolution.com)- According to authorities, a toddler in a car stolen from a driveway has been reunited with its mother.
The Special Victims Unit of the Philadelphia Police Department is being looked into the event.
According to authorities, a Nissan Rogue stolen from the 800 block of Arnold Street in the city’s Fox Chase neighborhood contained a baby.
Police found the mother’s car at Castor and Griffith Streets in Rhawnhurst, according to officials, after tracking the AirPods in it.

According to reports, police found the child and the stolen car by following the AirPod earphones the mother had left in the vehicle, which they had discovered abandoned.
According to reports, the infant was unhurt and was reunited with its mother. The accused is still at large.
Beyond these core details, however, little information has been made public, including whether the police followed the mother’s phone or Apple directly. As a result, the story remains unclear but fascinating, despite having a happy ending.
According to Autoevolution, GPS integration through Apple products like AirPods has been a helpful tool for helping law enforcement locate stolen automobiles.
The Alameda County Sheriff’s Office discovered a stolen automobile and some illegal firearms earlier this year after “using pings from a pair of recently stolen AirPods,” according to nonprofit news outlet Berkeleyside.
It’s important to note that stalkers have long used Apple’s location monitoring technology before the cops. For instance, a man from Las Vegas was charged with stalking a woman using wireless earbuds last summer.
Apple’s custom tracking software and others like it have advantages and disadvantages, just like any other type of digital surveillance. They can be used to help find persons or things that have been lost or stolen, but they can also be used to invade the privacy of others.
