Teen Charged With Stealing iPhone After He Answered FaceTime Call From Police, Cops Say
Cops took a screen grab of Chandler Carlyle, 18, which helped lead to his arrest.
Cops say a Florida teen made a Siri-ously big mistake when he allegedly stole a cell phone and then answered when they gave him a call.
But it wasn't just any call, the Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office said a deputy FaceTimed the stolen phone only to see 18-year old Chandler Ridge Carlyle appear on the other end.

The screenshot he snapped was then shown to the victim, who identified the person as the iPhone thief, police said in a statement.
According to the victim, he and Carlyle were at a friend’s house on Central Avenue when he allowed Carlyle to use his phone to call for a ride home.
The victim claims Carlyle then left with his phone, valued at approximately $600.
The OCSO deputy first sent a text message to the victim’s phone identifying himself and requesting that the phone be returned. He didn’t get any response, so he placed the FaceTime call.
