Every year, thousands of phones are pickpocketed by professional thieves taking advantage of fans distracted by a live event. Kyle Manning was at Lollapalooza when he says a thief deliberately bumped into him. Manning was then knocked into the arms of an accomplice who he says swiped his phone. To investigate how bad the cellphone-stealing issue is, Inside Edition sent a producer undercover to Lollapalooza with a new iPhone inside her clear backpack. An alleged thief took the bait phone that had an Apple Airtag attached to it. Within minutes, Inside Edition caught up to the alleged pickpocket, who denied any wrongdoing.
